Inspired by natural systems

Paula Roland’s encaustic monotype work investigates how ideas and aesthetics evolve. Inspired by natural systems, Roland disperses molten pigmented wax on a heated monotype palette. Using gestural movements, her touch and intentions are combined with the affects of heat and gravity. The molten wax is offset to paper or panel, cooling and affixing the image in time. These arrested marks mimic natural events, and to Roland, reveal her uncharted journey.
