These marks are drawn directly onto the surface or applied with encaustic paint using a writing tool heated by the flame of a candle. I am captivated by the interaction between the lines. This linear language created through deliberate mark making, sparked by intuition, continues my ongoing investigation of the interdependency of opposites. It is a quest for continuity and an impetus to create balance among antithetical systems such as: stillness and movement, simple and complex, static and vibrant.
