The Dark Wave Forms series of Sean Dawson

Sean Dawson’s abstract paintings are highly attractive: huge, full of energy, ‘explosive’, colourful… One of my favourite is the series titled ‘Dark Wave Forms’ which was exhibited at the Buchmann Galerie in Berlin: more dark (well… obviously!) you love to be drowned into each details which could be an art work by itself.

Alicia Tormey, Origin I, 2012

I hate Mondays… and today was particular awful with this bloody wind, the rain, the packed carriages on the trains due to severe delays on southeastern lines, the depressing meetings from 9am, the lazy flatmates who got the same level of energy than sloths (especially when cleaning is involved!)… aaargh!
So! In order to keep our spirits up, our good mood from the lovely weekend, I wanted to share the beautiful works from Alicia Tormey.

This American artist masters the technique of encaustic painting, which consists to mix the pigment of colors with hot wax (usually beeswax).
Very delicate and using specific tools for the ‘trait’ to be done before it dries, this method was popular during the Antiquity.

Her works (paintings, but also sculptures) are however very contemporary, and often depict a nature very colorful, creating a sort of fantasy world we would love to be surrounded by.

If you are interested by this technique, and you’re based near Seattle, why not follow some of her class here? ☺
