Bridgette Guerzon Mills | Finding Peace Within
encaustic mixed media, 5x7 inches, framed
Finding Peace Within is an encaustic mixed media painting by Bridgette Guerzon Mills. This piece includes an original gouache painting of the mourning dove, encaustic layer on top, and pieced together textile bits. Encaustic is an ancient medium comprised of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. To care for an encaustic piece, use a clean cloth to dust and buff. This painting is framed in a black float frame.
Artist Statement: My mixed media paintings incorporate moments captured by my photographs with the richness of paint, creating a bridge between two worlds – the real and the reconstructed. I lay down layers of paint and pieces of photo transfers, papers or fibers to create depth in both form and meaning. The canvas becomes a multilayered surface that speaks to both the visual and tactile senses. This integration of diverse layers creates an intimate connection that invites exploration.
