Curated by Katharine Dufault. To Wax Poetic is to grow more expansive or expressive lyrically. Growth and transformation is inherent in the verb to wax, and within the creative or poetic process itself. Each of the six New York based artists in this exhibition has created a symbolic language, or aesthetic, using encaustic paint. Encaustic is the ancient medium of beeswax, resin and pigment, applied while molten.
