Trapped in layers

The artist Alicia Tormey is an Encaustic artist who works with layers of wax long with other mediums.  For this piece she has trapped layers of a material (my guess is string) under layers of clear wax.

What do you think of this piece?  Is this something you would like to try?  What type of image would you create if you could trap thin pieces of material between wax?  What material might you use?

  15. I really like how the trees have a feathery texture to them. Also I like how they use warm colors to also bring out a calm feeling. Also the tree reminds me of the ones in The Lorax.

  17. This art piece is pretty wack , it's only a tree, like c'mon man. Everything about this painting is wack and un-origonal . paint something you don't see every day , paint an alien smoking a cigarette while skate boarding in hell carrying a puppy.

  64. I like how the different colors give the picture more detail like the purple-like color in the stem look like veins. I think it would be very hard with the wax not to drip things or smear it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think it would be a fun project. Id love to give it a try in class. The only problem is i dont know if id have the pacients to wait for the wax to dry

  70. I don't understand how someone can sit there for hours and paint something that simple and boring but yet make it look complicated.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I don't get it. I just don't understand, how people can not see what is obvious here. It's a representation of life. How life starts so simple. You're parents have this straight line for you and then you turn 18 and life starts to unravel. The end.

  72. This piece looks very simple, but at the same time it looks very complicated. I love the texture look. But I don´t think it is something I would want to do.
