Artist Corrie Ebel is currently working with encaustic painting.
In my "Movement" series, I identify with the wax as an expression of who I am; fluid, constantly changing, temporary, pliable. When I'm creating a piece the exterior of my life blurs and my soul moves into focus. I see myself in every piece. At the beginning of a project I see nothing. Stroke by stroke bits of my life appear. Emotions, experiences, thoughts. One by one they compile into the board, until a story is created. And when heat is applied to the wax the edges blur, layers are revealed, and I am reminded how beautifully complex life is.
