Natural Beauty Series 6
24 x 36 in
Encaustic and oils on framed canvas

In the fifth installment of the Natural Beauty Series, artist Delaney Bend invites us into a captivating exploration of ecofeminism through the unique medium of encaustic and oil. With a deep reverence for the ecofeminist movement, Bend's work serves as a reflection on gender equality and environmental preservation, envisioning a world where human, animal, and planetary life are mutually esteemed.

Through the artful projection of coral and foliage onto the female form, Bend captures the essence of natural beauty in its purest form. The female figure becomes a canvas, adorned with layers of blossoming flowers and thriving corals, symbolizing the Earth in her most pristine state. Here, the bare female figure embodies the spirit of Earth Mother, proudly residing within her finest creations.

Bend's collaborative approach with encaustic and oil further enhances the thematic depth of her work. The resilient, delicate, and primitive characteristics of these mediums mirror the intrinsic qualities of the feminine and the ecosystem. This symbiotic relationship highlights the delicate balance between societal sustainability and ecological preservation, showcasing the primitive resiliency and delicacy inherent in both realms. Through her artistry, Bend invites us to contemplate the interconnectedness of all life forms and the importance of nurturing this delicate balance for the well-being of our planet and its inhabitants.
