Laments of Aura (poem)
By Casey J. Wullner

To man her very breath, it is a means to cross the sea
For the shores she does not blow to, not a chance for him to be
Free she soars to height of bliss, her pain lifting at her wing
To search highest of cloud, fathers lost breath she hopes will sing
In pain she finds a pleasure, familiar scent that’s all too real
Mystified father has left her, a haunting thought of the ideal
Lamenting that lost breath, with tear filled eyes she just cant see
That the wind blowing behind her, her every breath, her fathers breeze
But that breath upon her shoulder, across her neck she cannot feel
With the wind always behind her, she'll never face it to reveal
Her breath I dare not capture, it's but her breeze that I embrace
For these winds of precious Aura, walled in by man have not the space
Her words I cannot say them, so of her honest I must speak
Her eyes piercing the untrue
Her gaze making all men weak

About the Art:

Medium/Technique:

PAVED CANVAS: This is a process of preparing the canvas, unique to Casey's work. Casey begins each Paved Canvas painting by applying a proprietary blend of Acrylic paint, Latex medium and sand. Casey often sources his sand directly from the beautiful beaches of Florida, where EnTactus Studio located! After meticulously cleaning the sand (we know this sounds silly but Casey Ensures us is important for the longevity of the painting), the blend is mixed and applied to the canvas, laying the foundation for the meticulous detail work to come later.

Once the paved Canvas has fully cured, Casey applies a series of ink and acrylic washes to make the texture more visually pronounced. It is only after this step that the truly masterful detail work begins. Using a combination of India ink and acrylic paint, Casey begins to paint in the figure starting with the vague shape and working his way layer by layer toward progressively finer and finer details. The most detailed areas of the paintings often taking 20 layers or more to get the intricate details that have become a signature of EnTactus Art and Casey's work. After 100 or more hours of detail work, and only once Casey has reached the limit of his ability does Casey call the work complete by signing it.
