Colorado - Encaustic painting utilizing red dirt from Colorado, 44x37.5, framed. Encaustic is painting with molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin and pigments. 

Colorado 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.”

We took a trip out west this summer, and I always feel so inspired being in the mountains! I brought home a bag of dirt from Ironton- an unbelievable orange place. This is what makes the rust color. The scale of the landscape makes a human feel so appropriately small. Living on the East coast all my life, everything is built to a human scale, the forests aren't very old here, the mountains have been ground into hills, and one can't see very far into the horizon. Out west one feels the majesty of being a very, very tiny molecule in a giant impartial system.
