Ember Soberman

Artist + Ember Soberman

My process begins with subconscious journaling. I investigate and digest my surroundings, recording the feelings I have in the places I explore. My favorite locations are those where man-made and organic forms meet and make an impression on one another. My eyes come to rest on the mark-­making and patinas composed by natural age.   For the past three years I have worked with encaustic paints on plaster. These multi-­layered pieces have a sculptural aspect in their build and excavation. This led me to explore paper in a similar way. By shaping and dying the surface I study, the volume and tension it can hold, I can create in a more three ­dimensional field in response to this newfound versatility.   Until now, my work focused on representational painting. My present interest allows the properties of surface to have an equal amount of say in the narrative, drawing on intuition, reading them as one would a new landscape.

Commissioned works are available. My subjects range from portraits, to landscapes and color fields. If you would like to discuss a commission, please private message me, and we can discuss further details for your vision.
