About Salyna

Salyna Gracie is a mixed media encaustic artist inspired by the layering of materials to evoke dreamscapes that explore questions of identity, memory, legacy and inheritance.

Maps are a recurring symbol in Salyna's work, navigating an individual mythology, while also illustrating the Greek concept of Sympatheia; the idea that all life shares the same energy of a universe that is an indivisible, unified living organism endlessly created anew.

Salyna’s art continues to evolve as she combines encaustic, printmaking techniques, collage, painting, bookbinding and beadwork. Mounted on simple wooden panels, each work transcends its humble materials to become a living altar of spirit.
