"The paintings I make reflect my interests in architecture and archaeology. They evoke the surfaces of well worn structures, at once revealing and concealing."
The word 'palimpsest' best describes the inspiration for Graceann Warn's work. A palimpsest is a manuscript page that has been written on, scraped off, and used again. One can see the vestiges of the previous images under the topmost surface evoking an ancient wall or well used chalkboard.
Warn uses pigmented wax (encaustic) in conjunction with found or created text and images in multiple layers along with a limited use of found objects.
The artists's formal education is in landscape architecture and she practiced in that field for a few years before deciding to work as an artist. She also attended graduate programs in Classical Archaeology and Theater Design.
