These works on paper are neither paintings nor conventional prints. They are one-of-a-kind encaustic monotypes, a unique process that Paula has pioneered and taught to hundreds of artists. "Paula Roland's works investigate how ideas and aesthetics evolve. Inspired by natural systems, Roland disperses molten pigmented wax on a heated monotype palette. Using gestural movements, her touch and intentions are combined with the affects of heat and gravity. The molten wax is offset to paper, cooling and affixing the image in time. These arrested marks mimic natural events, and to Roland, reveal her uncharted journey."
