PAST: ART: "Elemental" Encaustic Paintings by Georgia Nassikas at The Art League in The Torpedo Factory in Old Town THURS, March 8th - MON, April 2nd, Free

"Elemental" Encaustic Paintings by Georgia Nassikas

On view Thursday, March 8th - Monday, April 2nd

"Using beeswax from her own hives, artist Georgia Nassikas creates intriguing textures and layered surfaces in her encaustic paintings. Her intricate, abstracted landscapes acutely capture the ephemeral quality of light flickering across the land. "Elemental," a solo exhibition of her work, will be held in The Art League Gallery. Nassikas uses a combination of beeswax, mineral pigments, and oil sticks to create her encaustic paintings. Encaustic, a method reaching back to ancient times, is by definition a technique consisting of layers of wax fused together with heat."
