Barbara Maricle’s “Winter Series” plays upon the themes of visual suggestion, memory, and imagination. Atmosphere, mist, light, line, and shape coalesce to evoke a remembered sense of season, time, and place.

Color, line, texture and, composition are Barbara’s formal interests in these paintings. Intuitive mark making, heavy editing, and inquiry describe her approach to art making. Encaustic paint is layered, inscribed, scraped back, reattached, and fused repeatedly to reveal and conceal the layers beneath and to ultimately create a surface with visual depth. Heat allows the paint to meld and flow.

Her work is deeply connected to natural cycles and landscape. She hopes to awaken viewers’ memories and imagination through visual suggestion.
