Ecoscape explores the intersection of natural and man-made objects. The concrete of the bridge and roadway relate to the sky above in a way that reflects the nearby Potomac River only a few hundred yards away. Acknowledging the transient and temporal nature of bodies of water in constant and perpetual motion, Sondra Arkin incorporates these elements through encaustic painting, a technique that uses layers of pigmented, melted beeswax to create a textured, colorful, and luminous abstraction of this relationship. This organic conversation will continue to mature as the site transforms abandoned warehouses and overgrown fields into a large-scale County park and recreational facility that itself will meld both natural and unnatural elements.
