Colorado, 32x48" - multiple layers of encaustic (hot wax) and photo copy transfer on framed panel.
Colorado is part of Country / No Country series exploring rural and urban, travel and home, man and wilderness, and the places where they all fold together.
Encaustic is painting with molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin and pigments. The process translates literally as “to burn or melt.” 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.”
