Encaustic Art: The Complete Guide to Creating Fine Art with Wax Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a history that stretches back to the hauntingly beautiful mummy portraits of Greco-Roman Egypt, encaustic art is now enjoying a renewal of popularity among artists and art lovers alike. Today, museums are staging exhibitions of encaustic art, workshops in the technique are thriving, and art collectors and dealers are assimilating encaustic art into their collections and galleries.

 

The word encaustic is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in.” In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The result is a broad range of surface effects and a luminous translucency that is unique to the encaustic medium. Encaustic Art is a complete resource for artists who wish to learn to create fine art with wax. It features step-by-step techniques with easy-to-understand instructions and detailed illustrations, stunning examples of encaustic works of art (including sculpture), along with practical advice and thoughtful aesthetic observations from more than 60 professional artists working in the encaustic medium.

 

Synopsis:

This guide contains step-by-step techniques with easy-to-understand instructions and detailed illustrations, gorgeous examples of encaustic works of art, plus tips and techniques gleaned from interviews and studio visits with more than 60 professional artists working with the medium internationally. Full color.

About the Author

LISSA RANKIN’s encaustic paintings and sculptures are represented in prestigious galleries and museums in San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta. During her artistic career, she has developed an international reputation as an expert on encaustic and has been invited by a variety of art schools, conferences, workshops, and artists’ retreats to speak on encaustic art. Trained as an OB/GYN physician, her art reflects life’s events, such as birth and loss, and her continued work as a physician breathes life into her art.
