Considering the idea of discovery through making, this workshop will focus on building a deeper conversation with the paint and finding new ways to express meaning through the medium. It will take an experimental approach to question the possibilities of encaustic paint. Thinking about the elements of time, layers and history, we’ll work through a toolbox of methodologies suitable for dipping in and out of at varying times during a painting practice (underpainting, incision and impressing, subtraction and complexity of the image). It will offer suggestions about play, critical looking and thinking. We will look at other artists work to support the explored ideas and methods. Participants will work on 4 panels simultaneously throughout the workshop.
