Laughing Lizard StudioJen Wiechers is an artist who delights in expression through many media. One of her newest loves is encaustic painting. It offers layer upon layer of possibility. In both process and product, the medium encourages a dance between intention and happenstance. For Jen, this lesser known medium offers a very comfortable, versatile physical interface full of interweaving layers and unplanned effects. Using a combination of beeswax and dammar resin, oil pigment sticks and various found objects, her encaustic paintings are a collage-like ensemble of texture, color and form, embedded and revealed through many layers of additions and subtractions.
