‘The ebb and flow of encaustic’ is a group exhibition curated by Dianne Longley.

A beautiful translucency on photographs is created by warm and softened beeswax worked across the surface. This encaustic surface creates a compelling and mysterious aura through which the individual works resonate. Each artist has crafted a small series of related works, exploring the zen nature of encaustic. Sometimes the process is a smooth one and the work is completed quickly, but at other times there is a lot of ebbing and flowing before the encaustic surface and the image below attains a balance and transcendence.

Photographers: Ollie Cool, Jenny Hofmann, Aileen Hubbard, Dianne Longley, Annette Potter, Anne Richardson, and Annette Soumilas. Curated by Dianne Longley.
