I Cry for You

  • Description
    "I Cry for You" is an original encaustic painting by San Diego Artist, Shima Shanti. This painting is inspired by the meeting place of land and sea where earth and water merge; the fleeting moment between time and space where one gives way to the other. Shima is an encaustic painter working in the ancient art form of painting with molten beeswax and fusing with fire. Up to 50 layers of molten beeswax mixed with earth pigments are painted on Russian Baltic birch panel then each layer is fused with the flame of a torch. Shima's choice of all natural earth elements combined with her minimal aesthetic create patina and texture that is storied, translucent and luminous. In this simplicity unexpected levels of complexity surface. Shima's inspiration is borne from growing up in the endless abundance of water and big sky of Montana. This connection to nature has gifted her with an innate sense of color and composition. The unique beauty of the encaustic artform are bubbles, ripples and markings on the smooth-texture, high-gloss surface. Beeswax is one of nature's best preservatives impervious to moisture, UV light and will not darken or fade over time.
