Working mainly in encaustic, Corrie LaVelle often thinks of the medium as an expression of her personality: fluid, constantly changing, temporary and pliable.
About her work, Corrie says, “at the start of each piece I see nothing but a blank canvas. Stroke by stroke, bits of my life begin to appear. Emotions, experiences, thoughts. One by one they start to collect onto the panel, until a story is created. When I’m working on a piece, the exterior of my life blurs and my soul moves into focus. I see myself in every painting. When I finally add heat to the wax, the edges soften, layers are revealed, and I am constantly reminded how beautifully complex life is.”
