Combining layers of obsessively detailed colored pencil drawings done on translucent rice paper with layers of encaustic painting, the artist creates her characters and creatures from an assemblage of pieces, a psychological paper doll game of sorts. She layers body parts and clothing, using encaustic and other materials - antique lace, small shell fragments, and glitter - whatever suits her fancy. The end results are pieces that have depth not found in traditional paintings. Field's creatures can be out of focus; objects drift through the work space, as if floating by.
