Kneeland gallery,encaustic,  exhibition

This winter I have been working really hard at a new series of artwork – encaustic wax paintings.

Working with encaustic wax is a tactile, poetic, emotional experience. I am seduced by the alluring, organic translucencies of the encaustic medium. Labor intensive and difficult to master, the wax has a mind of its own, but this makes the medium even more exciting.

When painting with encaustic, I am embracing the ‘unknown’ and enjoy the experience of being out of control.

Through countless hours of experimentation I have developed my unique encaustic painting technique, which conveys the ethereal, atmospheric qualities of the wax and the subject  – in this series, the birds. I am proud to display my new works alongside the amazing bird sculptures of Greg Woodard. Our work really compliments each other!

I hope to meet some of you in Sun Valley, Idaho at our Kneeland Gallery artists’ reception  Februray 14, from 5-8. The show will be hanging until until March 3, 2014.  Also showing will be talented painters, Shanna Kunz and Steven Lee Adams.  Come say hello!
