Wax of Life

Derek Evans

Layers of wax create depth and capture the fragility and beauty of the simplest form of life – life in its infancy. Some have a texture that transports the viewer back into the womb, both comforting and full of wonder. Others explore the elements of a single cell, while making reference to celestial space. Viewers will discover landscapes that connect abstract and colour-saturated memories with the biological history of their own bodies.
