Art with a Story:

This piece is part of a series of encaustics in which I reflect on different aspects of Brazil, my home country. "Night in the Hinterlands" is inspired by a book written by prominent Brazilian writer João Guimarães Rosa, called "Sagarana". It consists of short stories in which G. Rosa talks about the life of the “cangaceiro”, a type of Brazilian cowboy and the mysteries of Brazilian hinterlands called “ sertão” The dry land of “sertão" is home of an exotic and enduring ecosystem. This amazes me so much that I felt compelled to accentuate some of its textures, colors and shapes in the layers of my encaustic.
