A Paradox Diptych (Oils and Encaustics)- by 

One panel was produced from darker hues in oil paint and encaustic wax and was built up to the lighter accents of values and lines. The other panel was created in the exact opposite process (starting with larger areas of white and light values of paint/encaustics and layering up to the accents of darker values and lines). In these two abstract expressionistic processes I attempted to create two separate works that represent a paradox of principles, yet together have a similar feeling. They are produced on gessoed canvas boards, with a variety of media- mainly oil paint, and wax, with some oil pastel, and black india ink.

    they really do complement eachother well, and when I read " paradox of principles ", you definitely had me. the alitteration rolls elegantly from your tongue straight into my mind, very nice indeed!

    Thanks for the comments on the two panels. They were thoughtfully and playfully produced. The originals have wonderful and unique textures…
