This exhibition features the seductive surface, luminous color, and ethereal image layering unique to the encaustic medium. Each of the ten artists approaches the process from a distinctive perspective that may incorporate scraping, burning, burnishing, incising, dipping, dyeing, or pouring, as well as painting, printmaking, drawing, collage, sculpture, or installation. Numerous conceptual links connect each artist's interest in this malleable material. Buried images, fragmented hybrids, or hidden codes of natural and industrial order, all translate into works infused with a physical and poetic beauty.
Profesor Reni Gower teaches Painting, Drawing, and Professional Practice in the Painting and Printmaking Department at Virginia Commonwealth University. In addition to her studio practice, she curates award winning traveling exhibitions.
