Cathy Loos
Artist
St. Louis, MO

“Discovery I.” Encaustic on board. The “painting was created using the encaustic process of laying hot melted wax paint to a surface and fusing each layer with fire or heat. Discovery I is a conceptual painting that addresses concerns of cave-dwelling humans. The campfire is an actual photo of fire taken by the artist and embedded in melted wax. Colors mimic an earthy palette.”

“Iterations 1417.”12″ x 12″ x 1.” 2012.

Iterations: 1417.”  Encaustic with oil stick and metal leaf “on braced board.
“One image from a series of work based on 1600 digital variations from a single image motif. A scored surface is juxtaposed with repetitive elements, which in turn hover over an ephemeral background space. There is a push-pull between decorative shapes vs. gestural texture, color vs. line, chaos vs. order.”
