Robin Denevan

My work is about process with an emphasis on the organic properties of the materials I use and how they mimic nature and landscape.  With my encaustic paintings I use a vocabulary of techniques to create a space.  Ink and acrylic stain and bleed on the canvas creating a sketch.  The splatters and glazes of oil fluidly represent the effects of water and reflection.  Lines and gouges in the wax form trees.  Beeswax blends and diffuses creating atmosphere.  I do not render a landscape as much as I allow the materials to naturally create one.
