Jude Lobe

Osprey Studio
Cold Wax & Oil, Encaustics

Nature is my muse. I’m inspired by its unrelenting qualities of rejuvenation and renewal. In nature things change, evolve. Like a forest goes through an ecological succession, so do we as individuals evolve. This idea I want to translate through my art. Cold Wax & Oil and Encaustics lend themselves perfectly in expressing this idea. It affords the opportunity to show a history of the painting by building up layers, obscuring what’s beneath and removing parts of layers to reveal bits of past layers. It represents the history of a life that becomes the compilation of bits and pieces of the experiences we travel.
