Linda Bigness
"Broadway Revisited," Abstract Encaustic Painting

2021

$6,250

About

This abstract encaustic painting with silver leaf is made on board and is framed in a warm silver floater frame. The piece itself measures 48" x 36", and is 49.25" x 37.25" framed. The piece is composed of layers of soft rectangles in a variety of colors including muted blue and pink, violet, mint green, yellow, and white. Darker outlines leaf shapes are visible in the bottom right and top left corners. Darker line work and texture is visible throughout the composition as well, creating borders and outlining several smaller shapes. The painting is wired and ready to hang. Encaustic literally means to “burn in,” from the Greek word, "enkaustikos." This name comes from the fact that in encaustic painting, each layer must be fused with heat to the layer beneath it. The base medium which is used for encaustic painting is primarily made from beeswax. The wax is mixed with damar resin which is crystallized sap from fir trees. The damar resin provides hardness while the wax provides luminosity. Encaustic art can be made with only this clear combination or mixed with high quality pigments. An encaustic “purist” will tell you that true encaustic painting must involve pigment but I would disagree because I love the qualities of even just the clear beeswax. Often combined with other mediums such as photography, painting in other mediums, and collage, encaustic paintings are coveted due to their luminosity, rich texture, and naturally aromatic smell. Linda Bigness is an internationally exhibited artist who maintains a gallery/studio in Syracuse, New York. Her work has been exhibited in several prestigious solo and group shows that have involved notable jurors such as art critic Clement Greenberg, Ivan Karp, director of OK Harris Gallery in NYC, and Tom Piche, director of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition, Bigness’ large scale paintings are often selected and commissioned for corporate and residential clients, including the Turning Stone Resort, Merrill Lynch Corporation, Haylor, Freyer and Coon, and Bausch and Lomb.
