America - Encaustic painting utilizing image transfers from photographs taken by Christine, 60x36 framed. Encaustic is painting with molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin and pigments. 

Beekeepers House is part of the Country / No Country series exploring rural and urban, travel and home, man and wilderness, and the places where they all fold together.

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

Encaustic is Ms. Sajecki’s favored medium.  “Encaustic is my home. It's almost like a living thing- its warmth, its body, its behaviors- and painting with it engages all the senses in ways that other mediums don't. Encaustic is so tactile, so physical, and so malleable.”

This piece contains Baltimore row houses, Savannah shipping containers, stones from Machu Picchu, the view from an airplane, and a Hex sign from western Virginia barns. These are all little pieces from my life and travels compressed into one memory. The American flag is there because this to me is America- all these cultural influences as neighbors to each other.
