Deborah Kapoor, our Encaustic Instructor, has curated a show on contemporary encaustic art for the Corridor Gallery in Seattle. The show is title “Navigate”. It will feature works by Joy Hagen, Kim Kopp, Holly Ballard Martz, Kevin Piepel and Kim Tinuviel.
What is significant about this group of Navigate artists is the hybridity of their subject matter and approach. The rise of globalization has made way for unprecedented eclectic narratives. The materials artists choose for their art often reflects issues of the day in our highly technical worlds, the increasing practice of combining encaustic with other materials, the utilization of new available contemporary tools brings us back to the palpable. The manipulated mixed media results in a new space of relevant social dialogue about our need to reconnect with the natural world. – Deborah Kapoor
The show will run January 4 – February 2, 2014 at the Corridor gallery. The gallery is located at 360 S. Washington St.
