About

Euphorbic 9, 2018 Abstract encaustic painting with assorted neutral toned spurge leaves on white encaustic encaustic and natural material over wood panel 12 x 12 inches Lightweight, hangs with a single d-ring Signed, verso This modern abstract encaustic painting by Allyson Levy is made with assorted beige, tan, and green spurge leaves encased in a layer of encaustic wax. The artist begins by finding the organic material in her 4-acre garden in upstate New York which she then arranges and embeds with encaustic on a wooden panel. The separate leaves are laid in a linear abstract motif on the panel and layered with a thick coat of encaustic wax. The encaustic wraps around to the sides of the panel, revealing some bumps and downward drips, accumulated during the natural drying process of the encaustic. The piece weighs about 4 pounds and is hung on one d-ring. About the artist and her work: Allyson Levy is represented by Carrie Haddad Gallery based in Hudson, NY. After moving to the rural town of Stone Ridge, NY seventeen years ago and starting a 4-acre botantical garden with her husband, mixed media artist, Allyson Levy, has found endless inspiration in the plant kingdom that surrounds her. The garden itself, named “Hortus Conclusus”, consisting of thousands of rare plants and edibles, remains at the epicenter of Levy’s art making. A fascination with earth’s bounty is expressed with her works in encaustic. Assorted organic material such as leaves, seeds, branches, insect wings, and flowers are decoratively arranged in a layer of beeswax, encaustic and pigment. Some panels have richly pigmented backgrounds; specks of gold found in poppy pods reflect off of a mat black base and plum purple contrasts the natural coloration of birch bark. Following her original inspiration based on a 15th century practice of preserving seeds in wax during extended sea voyages, Levy’s intentions are to capture and reflect on a specific moment in the material’s life span. Adding, “from sprout to decay, the viewer is visually confronted with the profoundly beautiful, devastating and inevitable cycle.” Allyson Levy has exhibited with the gallery and regionally since 2000.
