Kay Hartung
"Bio Patterns 14", encaustic, pastel, abstract, microscopic, rust, peach, green

2018

$1,000

About

Kay Hartung’s “Bio Patterns 14” is a 18 x 18 x 1.5 inch encaustic painting composed of transparent layers depicting microscopic forms on a richly patterned background. In colors of rust, peach, green, and cream, the transparent layers create a sense of luminous depth. The painting is unframed and signed by the artist on the reverse of the cradled wood panel. 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. Hartung is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
