"Boundaries" is an abstract hot wax painting (encaustic) piece that explores the idea of boundaries, both physical and emotional. People thrive best when they know the boundaries of their world, it brings a sense of comfort and safety. However, too many boundaries and one can feel restricted, imprisoned. One persons comforting border is another persons edge of a cage. The pink, yellow and brown marks in the hot wax painting on one hand illustrate a sort of fence, or boundary that provides a safety net; on the other hand it could be seen as scratch marks, from someone trying to free themselves. A figure can almost be seen in forming in the center, are they free within their boundary, or struggling to be free from it? Placement recommendation: This piece would be perfect in a home study or office. It would give any space a burst of energy or be a wonderful talking point at your next dinner party.
