Encaustic

My newfound happiness

Encaustic is a new form of expression that I have found, so different from presenting my work with acrylic face-mounting, or held behind glass in frames. The encaustic medium can be used instead of glass or acrylic, yet it is not a substitute, as it does not work the same way.

One of the most wonderful outcomes of working with encaustic is that images that did not work well as regular prints suddenly have found their voice. The softer images that lack contrast (to which I have many) are perfect for encaustic. It is so exciting to me when I find images in my archive that are perfect for encaustic. It is like I have a second portfolio within my portfolio.

The encaustic process has also brought me great joy. The steps to create a good encaustic piece are many, and they all must be completed perfectly for each subsequent step to be successful. However, when I reach the end of a labour of love with a finished piece, it brings me joy.

Encaustic is a fascinating medium to work with: after pouring the medium onto my image, the medium first becomes more opaque, and then, like a photograph developing in a lab, the colours and details begin to emerge. This is the most exciting part, as you never really know how the art will look beneath the encaustic until this moment. As someone who has always enjoyed printing and working with my prints, I have enjoyed getting away from the digital screen to have some fun making these pieces. It is satisfying to work with my hands and to have a more tactile participation in the creation of art.
