Have you every noticed how often you look to the skies? Whether it be watching the arrival of an oncoming storm or lying on our backs on a hot summer’s day lazily gazing upwards. We find ourselves looking for shapes and figures in passing cumulus clouds or running for cover from the menacing skies of a storm.  The skies dictate the emotions of nature and often that of man.  At dusk they dazzle us with technicolour sunsets reminding us of their artistic prowess, whereas at night they shine and twinkle holding within their folds of darkness the possibility of other worlds.  The skies can make even the most powerful of men succumb to their greatness.

In this series I have elevated the sky to it’s rightful dominance.  At least half to three quarters of each canvas is devoted to the sky as the subject matter.  Using blowtorches, heat guns and household irons to manipulate the wax across the surfaces of my boards I have endeavoured to capture the many moods and magnificence of the sky.

“Sky Scraping”  New encaustic paintings by Susan Wallis

Skyscraping I 30x36     Cloud Daydreams 24x26 2015

The Greeks gazed to the skies where they believed their gods resided. Wise men looked to the skies and followed a star that would lead them to their supposed king. Early Renaissance paintings depict angels awkwardly hanging from cloud littered skies. Paintings by Turner depict the sky in all its fiery glory, while German Romantic painters like Friedrich portrayed man as meager players under the vast stage of the sky.   Skies throughout the history of art have played more than just a backdrop under which humans interact.

Have you every noticed how often you look to the skies? Whether it is watching the arrival of an oncoming storm or lying on our backs on a summer day lazily gazing to the skies. Who hasn’t looked for shapes and figures in passing cumulus clouds or ran for cover from menacing skies of a storm. The skies dictate the emotions of nature and often that of man. At dusk they dazzle us with technicolour sunsets reminding us of their artistic prowess, whereas at night they shine and twinkle holding within their folds of darkness the possibility of other worlds. The skies can make even the most powerful of men succumb to it’s greatness.

In this show entitled, ”Sky Scraping” I have elevated the sky to it’s rightful dominance. At least half to three quarters of each canvas is devoted to the sky as the subject matter. Using blowtorches, heat guns and irons to manipulate the wax across the surfaces of my boards I have endeavored to capture the many moods and magnificence of the skies under which we inhabit.
