Encaustics: Wax and Image at the Westchester Gallery / by Danielle Correia

If you are in the area, stop by and check out photography & encaustic work I have in a show that runs through the end of July.

This exhibition is a survey of regional artists working in the medium of encaustics, a wax based paint (composed of beeswax, resin, and pig­ment) kept molten on a heated palette. Remaining malleable only as long as the wax is hot, encaustic is time-based. Layers of rich, vivid color accumulate as they are poured, brushed, and mixed together on a porous surface, fusing together as the wax solidi.es. Each artist in the exhibition offers a unique perspective on this beautiful medium–at once intuitive and scienti.c–presenting an array of poetic explorations of color, form, process, and material.
