About

Joanne Ungar’s background in collage arts transitioned into her current process works when she began working with wax in the 1990’s. Her luminous wax paintings are created with refined, purified beeswaxes and commercial grade paraffins with very high melting points, as well as encaustic pigments and encaustic medium, creating work that is archival and stable. This current series began as a "packaging" double entendre: it was a way to address and explore feelings about the cosmetics industry and her own involvement in it (as an occasional digital artisan). When this cardboard box series began to take shape she was using actual cosmetics and their accompanying tiny cosmetics boxes to make assemblages. The work started as a personal reaction to the 'packaging' and homogenizing of women and the false illusions and standards created by the advertising world. Years later it has blossomed into a full blown fascination with cardboard and all its possibilities, along with a desire to highlight the waste and destruction our society creates daily. Joanne Ungar is originally from Minneapolis. After studies at Oberlin College in Ohio she moved to New York City and earned a BFA from the School of Visual Arts. Ungar currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
