Show Acceptance: “Meditation: Sunset”

“Meditation: Sunset” was accepted in the Working in Wax exhibit.  Juror Eileen P. Goldenberg. Bedford Gallery, http://www.bedfordgallery.org/.  May 6 – June 21, 2009.

“Encaustic paint has luminous translucency, a succulent surface, and warms to the touch, like human skin. It offers a wide range of applications, such as using the pure encaustic with no color, adding pigments for rich color, creating texture, casting in molds, collaging with photographs, and making sculptures by combining it with wood, steel, and other materials. I believe this is why we love the wax; it gives us endless possibilities for expression.

Selecting well conceived, beautifully executed, and visually satisfying art works was my vision for this show. I was looking for artists who give us a glimpse into their emotions and lives. Though the focus of this show is the material, what is vital to art is the expression of the artists, and it is their visual language that shines through.

Eileen P. Goldenberg, juror”
