Judith Kohin: Up, an exhibiton of new encaustics
Mar 3 – Apr 3, 2016

Her primary artwork over the past ten years has been in mixed media and encaustic. This current body of work titled “Up,” is a series of paintings created from silkscreen prints on cotton over laid with encaustic wax, oil paint, pastel and other media. Although the printmaking and encaustic processes are rather technical, time consuming and complicated, she finds the work meditative and engrossing. She loves the surprise and unpredictability of print making, and the luminosity and depth of encaustic. The title of the exhibition, “Up,” is a reflection of the joy and gratification she has felt while making the work. “Art making is one of the most uplifting things I do. I love it and I hope these paintings convey that.”
