MORE GRACEANN WARN ENCAUSTICS
Another of graceann's pieces, with birds and egg!!! HOPE.
i can't seem to flip the next two, SO turn sideways to see the two photos of the ten inch square piece that i own, with small envelopes and numbers 1-6.
i was drawn to the color, and to quote her from an interview: "...the concept of synesthesia. I'll look at a color and I'll taste it- as if colors have flavors. And numbers have colors...I think for me abstract art, especially color and form, have something to do with that, because when I look at an abstract painting I can taste it or I can hear it. Edges of color, one edge of color against another, that connection, that line that they make, is heartbreaking to me sometimes. Or it's joyful. I has emotion---there's a word that I can put to it that has an emotional meaning. Rothko has always been like that to me. The edges of where a red fades off to a black---it can make me cry."
WELL, YES, ME TOO!!
