Enticed by touch, four artists explore a wide range of materials and processes linked through craft and meaning. With a shared focus on encaustic (pigmented hot wax) FLASHPOINTS: Material / Intent / Fused beautifully underscores where material and intent converse and fuse. Whether a painting, a tapestry, an installation or artist book, the works in this exhibition resonate with a profound tactility echoed through substance, image, and idea. Viewers are invited to explore an immersive sensory-filled experience that is defined by more than just wax. FLASHPOINTS celebrates the art of making across a wide interdisciplinary matrix sure to appeal to all ages. Organized by Wylie Contemporary, Inc, Virginia.
