This dramatic landscape is an oil encaustic on canvas. A blazing, red horizon line slices through the composition, radiating light from within. Her expressive brushwork differentiates the sky above from the land below. Vermillion Light Revisited comes gallery wrapped, ready to hang.
The encaustic medium is ancient in its origins and consists of a pigment suspended in wax. When oil paint is mixed with beeswax, dramatic effects are achieved. Light filters through the layers of paint giving Rogers’ work an inner glow. The oil encaustic process holds the impression of her brushstrokes, allowing the artist to create a composition with a tactile surface quality.
