Throughlines by Melody Epperson
8 Inches x 35 Inches x 1 Inches
Recently, during this period of isolation, I have had much time to think about horizons. I think about time, space and where the horizon actually lies. After all, the horizon is a lonely place, a place of surrender, a place to consider the future, the past and the present. This is how I feel during this time of COVID-19, both alone and together, looking inward and outwards, unsure and at peace.
Horizons is a series of cold wax and encaustic paintings that speak to the opportunity in such spaces, at such times. They tell the story of hope, reminding us to believe that there is a way to the horizon. They speak of the many possibilities and paths we can take from this unique vantage point. These paintings are long and thin, stretching wide like the land. A few of are rectangular suggesting the feeling of being confined and unsure or even stuck. This enemy is tiny, but it is my hope that this series reminds the viewer to look beyond the detail of now into the new horizons.
