Ever since my collegiate Geology studies, I’ve been fascinated with the Earth and its stories that are forever captured in rock and strata. This geological painting explores the interconnection between Earth and humanity. Through abstract imagery, I convey the story of the Anthropocene; the present geological age, in which humans have massively reshaped the environment, and the heaviness of the fate of the world that rests upon our shoulders. Like the formation of earth itself, this painting is created with multiple layers of materials. Encaustic, alcohol inks, wax pencil, and pastels are applied to a wood substrate and carefully layered, fused with heat, and scraped back repeatedly to reveal the intended visual texture and artist’s vision
