Encaustic for Wonders of Wynyard


It is a while since I have done any encaustic art and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this medium again to create some colourful, abstracted, textural works for my TOUCH exhibition to be held at Wonders of Wynyard over the month of September 2012. The wax glides beautifully onto the gloss paper substrate and with theapplied  heat it can  be manipulated into various thicknesses and patterns. In much of my art work  I love soft edges which dissipate into a distant haze but in encaustic what appeals is  crisp well defined edges and strong contrast in a bold approach. I do not give these works a title which suggests what one should see in them but rather leave the viewer to make their own discoveries.
