About

Kay Hartung’s “Bio Flow 6” is a boldly saturated 20 x 20 inch painting in jewel tones of blue, magenta and green capturing cell activity and the energy of an imagined microscopic world. The 20 x 20 x 2 inch deep birch panel is created with encaustic and pastel. The piece is unframed, and signed by the artist on the reverse. Encaustic painting, a technique used by the ancient Greeks, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. Encaustic is among the most beautiful of all artists' paints, and is as versatile as any 21st century medium. Due to the fact that beeswax is impervious to moisture, encaustic is incredibly durable; it will not deteriorate, yellow, or darken over time, eliminating the need for protective varnish or glass. Kay Hartung is a Boston, Massachusetts area artist interested in the intersection of art and science, particularly the microscopic world. Her work has been included in exhibitions throughout the country and is in both private and corporate collections.
