Encaustic: Contemporary Works is the first exhibit at ASLD to feature the captivating but often underrepresented medium of encaustic artwork. Encaustic is a Greek word meaning, “to heat or burn in,” where hot beeswax and varnish are applied to a wood panel or canvas base and then layered and intermixed with colored waxes and paper materials. Heat is used throughout the process, with each layer getting reheated to fuse it with the previous layer, making encaustic works very complex with a certain depth and texture not typically seen with other, more common mediums.
