Current work by artist Virginia Headley Maserang, abstract expressionist in encaustic
Abstract expressionist in the medium of encaustic, in her current body of work Virginia Headley Maserang explores the dynamic balance of life metaphorically through rust, fire and wax. Working in Central Texas, she is inspired by the Southwest's independent spirit, its deep blue skies and warm summer hues. Learning the ins and outs of working in the ancient medium of encaustic from a number of masters of the medium over the last five years, Headley Maserang is an autodidact in the greater field of art, leaving her open to unlimited perspective and unquenched enthusiasm for exploration. She has shown her work in a number of juried exhibits in the US, and actively participates in the Austin, TX art scene through the East Austin Studio Tours and other events.
