Caroline Camden Lewis. Savanna. Encaustic and acrylic on wood. 8 x 8 inches. (2018). $150.
The African savanna, an ecosystem of tropical grassland, is home to many animals such as the zebra, rhinoceros, lion, impala, giraffe, and leopard. The coats of these animals boast some of nature’s most renowned pattern types—zebra, giraffe and leopard. This piece stands as an homage to the incredible patterns of the beautiful animals inhabiting the African savanna, and the copper sunlight under which they live.
Encaustic is an ancient art medium using beeswax, resin and pigment applied to wood at 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
