Artist Randal Arvilla will discuss the ancient technique of encaustic painting and describe his contemporary approach of using collage and carbon to create his sculptural encaustic works. Encaustic paintings are made by building-up multiple layers of hot wax, which is then cured. Randal will talk us through his process, demonstrate the materials he uses and describe the history of this technique, used by the ancient Romans and the American Abstract Expressionists.
