  • Description
    "Restrained By Our Own Making" is an original encaustic painting by San Diego Artist, Shima Shanti. 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 fused with the flame of a torch. Shima's minimal aesthetic and choice of all natural elements create patina and texture that is storied, translucent, and luminous. In this simplicity unexpected levels of complexity surface. Beeswax is one of nature's best preservatives impervious to moisture, UV light and will not darken or fade over time. The unique beauty of encaustic is imperfection. There are bubbles, ripples and markings on the smooth-texture, high-gloss surface. Shima's inspiration is borne from growing up in the endless abundance of water and big sky of Montana. Her connection to nature has gifted her with an innate sense of color and composition.
