Tanya Kirouac, (Encaustic)
Depth and texture. Complexity and nuance. These are the wonders which come from the working through layers and the drawing out of details and moments. The overlaps and mixtures of wax, pigment, and objets trouvés provide dimension and possibility. The surfaces are almost terrestrial, with ideas that bubble below and wait to be drawn up into the light. Textural substrates create a world into which these ideas emerge and upon which they can grow. And from this confluence, there is both an actual, and a perceived delicacy in the balance that affords great moments and ongoing challenges to both the artist and the viewer.
A technique as old as recorded time, brought forward with modern adaptations, creates opportunity for dynamic landscapes, emotive sculpture, and wistful remembrance. An art form drawn from the cradle of civilization, renewed by time, to transform and illuminate touchstone moments which are, in themselves, timeless.
