Tenebraria Akele

In this highly textured, encaustic mixed media work, a woman’s eyes peer out at the viewer through abstract surroundings of red, blue, green, brown, black, and yellow splotches.    Around the woman’s face, colors blend together in mottled splotches.    A repeating pattern of milky-colored eye shapes around a square give texture to the entire painting. The arrangement of the eye shapes creates the impression of a circle.    The way the face is framed by the more abstract colors makes it look as though the woman is partially hidden behind something, perhaps a veil, or as if she is peering out from behind foliage.
