About

Kay Hartung’s “Bio Shadows 2” is an encaustic painting depicting an imagined scene of floating microscopic particles. In soft shades of grey and white these biomorphic forms float around the the mottled background. Thread and fabric are embedded in the surface of the painting. The piece is 20 x 20 inches, painted on a cradled wood panel. It is unframed and signed 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.
