& bees wax
Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, is an ancient form of painting that dates back to Egypt around 100 - 300 AD.
(So basically, when mummies
were a thing!)
The hot wax is always applied to a sturdy surface, usually wood.
Often, a collection will be comprised of multiple wooden panels.
Diptypchs are a set of 2 painted panels, and Triptychs are a set of 3 panels. These panels are created to go together and act as a set.
The style of encaustic painting that I create is called nonrepresenatational, meaning it doesn't look like anything.
Abstract and nonrepresentational are 2 different painting styles.
The difference is that abstract is a distorted painting style that still resembles its subject matter, whereas nonrep is completely devoid of any resemblance and focuses solely on color, form, and texture to convey emotion.
Bold. Textural. Embellished
