"Dark Night of the Soul", an Encaustic, Found Object Collage by Colorado Contemporary Artist, Susan M. Gibbons

"Dark Night of the Soul"

Encaustic and Found Object on Thai Bird's Nest Paper

22" x 6"


The found object in this piece was discovered laying on the ground in Denver, CO, just waiting to be placed within a contemplative work of art.  The stitching represents the Constant, God, that which is always present, and the object is representative of the Self.  Painted in blacks, terra cottas, and browns, these hues accentuate the subtle colors of the object.
