STUDIO CLOSING AT THE END OF JUNE, 2021. CLOSEOUT PRICES ARE 90% OFF! ALL SALES FINAL
I can no longer physically keep up with the demands of a studio. I have been painting with melted beeswax. It's a process known as "Encaustic" from the Greek for "to heat". It is one of the oldest forms of painting, known to the ancient Greeks thousands of years ago. It can be shiny smooth, or highly textured. It allows one to layer or scrape away, to be translucent or opaque, or to collage objects into your surface. Prior to that, I worked in oil.
My work has been chiefly abstract, allowing me to make allusions to ideas, the works of other artists, or emotions without being too literal, too specific. It also allows me to push beyond my comfort zone, to find unexpected connections. Although I have a love of Art History, I use my art to explore, question, and comment on contemporary topics. But now, it"s time to close it down.
Increasingly, my work took on a very political and social-justice orientation. In our current world, I cannot sit back and just make "pretty pictures." So a portion of my work is very political. And because I don't just do this for me, a portion of the sales of my political work is donated to a variety of nonprofit and social justice organizations.
I have loved my customers, and they have been very good to me in return. But now it's time to close things down. I will continue to be in my studio, off and on, thru the end of June. I can be available there by appointment only until June 30. After that, I can still be contacted if you are interested in purchasing a piece. I take cash, credit card or Paypal. Sorry, no shipping services at this time, though I can deliver within the general Indianapolis area.
