This exhibition explores the riddle of living, the struggle to be content with the moment, with what is. Rather than wishing things were different – not wanting what we have, wanting what we don’t have, Mr. Nepo points to the deep truth that everything we need is right before us. Encaustic painting lends itself perfectly to this concept of here and now. There is an immediacy to encaustic which suits an intuitive style of working and its inherent translucent characteristics readily express a wide range of subject matter.
Shown: “Night of the Soul” by Candace Law (Encaustic, Transfer, Mixed Media | 20″ x 16″)
