Yoda in Egg Tempera

Small delicate egg tempera paintings. The paint used lends itself to minute detail and the diminutive scale of the work. The orderly method of creating the medium - grinding of pigments, mixing them with egg yolk - the beauty of the paint with its translucent waxiness, the richness of the colors, these are the elements that inspire the artist. She uses this ancient medium in a contemporary way, pushing the form in a direction that is unpredictable, throwing intensely painted realism up against tightly rendered patterns. The contrast between the two creates a tension that reflects the multiple dualities of this world we live in.
