...is the birth of the air, is

the birth of water, is

a state between

the origin and

the end, between

birth and the beginning of

another fetid nest

 

is change, presents

no more than itself

 

And the too strong grasping of it,

when it is pressed together and condensed,

loses it

 

This very thing you are..

The Kingfisher, Charles Olson

Penland is a series of mixed media paintings exploring the adaptability of encaustic paint. It is an exploration of traditional two-dimensional drawing/painting elements as low-relief sculptural encaustic objects.
