Kāpiti Arts Trail: Listing no. 54
Artistic medium: Encaustic painting and photography
Demonstration time: 2pm each day
Before I even begin painting, I love that my artwork already has a history and a presence that you would not get from a store bought canvas. The Encaustic medium encourages experimentation and playfulness, for its capacity to be layered and scraped back. Its satin nature encases and seals the substrate, adding depth and translucency to my layered photographic images, only to reveal portions hidden by pigments in its wonderful waxy texture. Tread lightly on our earth, and be conservationists in our own right.
