The varied influences and experiences in Angela White’s life come through clearly in the ranging images of her work. From international travel in pieces such as “Karpathos Island, Greece”, to explorations of the inner and outer self in  “Traces” and “California Summer”, her encaustics capture moments and emotion that, as is common with abstracts, allow the viewer to fill in the blanks from their own lives.

 

Artist’s statement excerpt:

“Body prints I created in 2007 interpret memories held within the body, as well as the body in motion. Body printing is well known within art history, but my unique focus has been to show movement with the body. Using a digital camera, I took digital images of my body prints and then transferred and embedded them into new encaustic paintings – fusing translucent layers of luminous encaustic surfaces allows me to create visual depth and density in my work.

“The seascapes and landscapes are created using encaustic and water-based oil paints, and are occasionally embedded with gold and silver leaf and covered with iridescent oil paints. A deep sense of awe and reverence for the beauty and power of nature is expressed in all of my water and land paintings. These natural landscapes, along with the body print paintings, all reflect a desire to show constant movement and natural rhythm.”

Beautiful work Angela! My laptop screen only gives me a hint of the delicate layers of your wonderful encaustics. Seeing encaustic work by Jasper Johns in print is quite different than the empirical experience. I must assume such is the case with your work.
