With Wax: Materiality & Mixed Media in Encaustic (Sneak Peek 2)

I may have jumped the gun when I introduced what I thought was the complete line-up of included artists in this show. I’m so pleased to announce two new additions, Deborah Kapoor and Cari Hernandez.

We are in the home stretch for installation of With Wax, my curated show at the Chester County Art Association coming up in the first week of September! I can’t believe it, it’s been almost a year in planning. Please read my first article about this show, which includes images and statements from the eight other artists, as well as my curators statement.

I may have jumped the gun when I introduced what I thought was the complete line-up of included artists in this show. I’m so pleased to announce two new additions, Deborah Kapoor and Cari Hernandez. I have long been a fan of both of these artists…first, because they are amazing women and second, they have consistently made work that is always innovative, inspired and engaging for the many years that I have known them.

With the addition of Deborah’s and Cari’s work, the line-up of artists is finally complete. Please note that the images included in this article may/may not be work that will be included in the show.

I do hope to see some of you at the opening when I will be presenting an interactive encaustic demonstration. If you can’t make it to the opening, I hope you will come by and see the show, it’ll be up through September.

Deborah Kapoor – Washington, USA
I am inspired by cultural markers related to spaces the body inhabits. Universal themes I traverse include embodiment, destruction, renewal, legacy, perseverance, spirituality, and the space language and architecture occupy —  with a particular interest in the vulnerable.
My work is process-oriented, often beginning with a piece of fabric or paper, adding threads, ephemera, paint and markmaking — to create haptic, dimensional wall pieces, sculptural objects and installations
There is an inherent intimacy in what I make, no matter the scale. My attention lingers in the liminal, making connections between states of being and the need for belonging at a time when there is a poverty of empathy in our global community.

Cari Hernandez – California, USA
Her work combines rich color fields in conjunction with an elegant layering of line and pattern creating a developed depth of interest in each painting whereby the human experience is woven into her rich layers of material, creating a historical record for exploration. When working with other mediums such as oil or fiber, her focus continues to be centered on color study, shape, and form. She is endlessly inspired by her natural environment of the ocean, mountains, and wildlife that surround her in Sonoma County.   The sculptural work in this show is from a series I have been working on for the past decade, exploring the notion of thought, and how the strands of ideas might intertwine in/out of our reality.
