Lorraine Glessner
Flirtatious Superficiality, Large Abstract Encaustic Diptych in Cream and Pink

2013

About

Encaustic painting is an ancient process that involves using heated beeswax combined with colored pigments. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. Lorraine Glessner's paintings are complex multi-layered compositions. The artist uses found materials such as wood, paper, textiles and hair combined with processes such as encaustic (hot wax), stitch, branding with fire, rust and plant staining to reflect on the intimacy of memory, the awareness of mortality and spiritual growth.
