A painter, Karen English has been exploring new mediums here at the Bend Art Center. The exhibit includes a Monotype print and five encaustic works that explore abstract landscapes. The Monotype print entitled “Spring” is inspired by Francoise Gilot’s, The Four Elements Suite. The encaustic works being exhibited are a play in color, texture, and collage elements. Encaustic is an ancient art form using heated bees wax. Wax layers are fuzzed with heat and can create intriguing transparency. Texture can also be added at different stages of the cooling wax to further the depth of the work.
