“Still In The Mist” at In-Town Gallery for June
In-Town Gallery presents Nadine Kosky whose subject is ”Still In The Mist” as the feature artist for June. Many of her works are ethereal landscape paintings that draw the viewer into the scene while wondering about the encaustic process which is her medium of choice. Meet the artist at the opening reception Friday, June 5, 2015 beginning at 5 PM until 8 PM at 26A Frazier Avenue.
“I enjoy using materials that provide a little science with the process and a little mystery in the results.” The encaustic process uses hot wax combined with stains, inks, oil paints, shellac and pigments alone or in combination. Layering by applying wax, scraping off and using various pigments and tools like torches and heat guns creates a lustrous surface not quite oily but with a sheen that adds to the mystery. “Creating that next thing is compelling to me. The problem solving and research required to achieve the results is a large part of the enjoyment and satisfaction, but so are the unexpected accidents that, in turn, provide the inspiration for the next thing."
