This fascinating collection consists of encaustic monotypes created on a hot plate. For these one-of-a-kind prints, pigmented wax bars move freely over the plate as they melt—creating the paint—then paper is laid over the hot wax to create the image. Each piece comes from mind to hand to paper without preconceived ideas about what they should be, leaving evidence of the artist’s hand in the making of each mark. The figures in “Reckless Forms” are intuitive and gestural, evocative of bodily and ethereal forms that are open to the imagination.
This First Tuesday reception is held in honor of the artist(s) exhibiting at the Walters. Live music by Dan Abrahamson (Guitar). With thanks to our sponsor, Decadent Creations.
