Santa Fe artist Paula Roland’s “Language of Beauty VII,” an encaustic monotype on Shikoku paper, is about the most free-flowing and organic piece in the exhibit. “I purposely use processes that are slightly out of my control,” Roland says. “With encaustic monotypes, there is an aspect of performance. Acting, creating marks and shapes using dancelike whole-body movements, and reacting — accepting and utilizing the fluid wax and pigment forms that are often a surprise.
