Carly Le Cerf

Carly  Le Cerf
Carly lives in the Great Southern region of Western Australia with her husband and twin girls. Since moving to the region ten years ago she has been developing her painting process towards the encaustic works produced today.
Carly's work explores the fragility of farmed landscapes and the delicate balance that exists between degradation and nurture. Inspired by the way we sculpt our environment and replicate this in the making process. Using encaustic medium (refined beeswax, pigment and dammar resin) to layer, carve and scrape back until the landscape is formed and thoroughly expressed.
She paints in aerial perspective, which enables her to take in the landscape in its entirety and see the impact of human interaction. The changing colours and patterns are an endless source of inspiration. From a great height, the continuous belts of habitat that are gradually forming across agricultural landscapes can be seen.
