Waskiewicz aims to decode the physical and affective elements of a landscape into a complex color system, breaking down colors into swatches to capture the ways in which slight variations in hue and shade vibrate within the eye. She applies multiple layers of acrylic paint before carving back into the built-up surface with woodcarving tools. This process of sedimentation and erasure, covering and uncovering, transforms the layers of paint into three-dimensional woven textures.
Waskiewicz views her paintings as having various facades, some existing longer than others, some never to be scene again through the carving process. This work involves multiple layers of clandestine pattern and imagery to be later revealed through the artistic process. Working in this process involves much planning, but also leaves space for surprise.
