Sajecki’s encaustic paintings are dreamy and sometimes allegorical explorations of her surroundings. They are shaped by history, storytelling, social engagement, urban foot paths, and the body and behavior of the materials she uses.

“We live in a spiral of history that folds and collapses. Material, land, and stories echo and overlap from one generation to the next. Each place collects them, each city has its past in its bricks, each person carries what they can from place to place. This is what my work investigates, and what I am interested in. I set out to echo the stories in our materials, in cities, of people and land. My painting, like fiction, represents one possible arrangement of history, memory, and now.” - Christine Sajecki
