Many Houses - Encaustic Painti
Artists take their inspiration from many sources. With instinctive as well as learned skills, plus imagination, they are able to translate these sources into works of art that in turn can inspire others.
Artists Margaret Cromb, JEAN BOHUSLAV and Lin Quaife, all exhibiting at Falkner Gallery, are excellent examples of this. Each is passionate about and committed to her own philosophy and influences. The results of each are quite different but are equally inspiring to others.
Jean Bohuslav’s Show is entitled ‘Philosophy, Oil and Wax’. Sixteen encaustic paintings, illustrate her observations of the inner journey to Awareness, the search for truth and love. Human foibles are expressed as veiled illusions, which, due to her fascinating painting technique of applying oils and melted wax and medium to pigments on board/canvas, appear as layers of consciousness. Her subjects seem whimsical but are in fact deeply thought-provoking, and her technique adds to the mystery of her view of life’s journey of self-discovery.
