Wonders of Wynyard at the Wynyard Visitor Information Centre did a great triptych invite for my exhibition TOUCH to be opened at 2p.m. on Saty 8th September. RSVP preferred but not essential. I will speak about the works… media used, inspiration and relevance to the theme.
How many different ways can you think of in which the term “touch” is a part…. keeping in touch, “touched” emotionally, tactile experiences…..
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.
