Opening reception for encaustic painter Kevin Frank

For me, combining the techniques of the ancient Greco-Roman painters with those of the old and new masters help to create unique modern images. As with all encaustic work, viewing it in person is the best way to appreciate the immediacy of the medium, brought to life as light travels through the layers of pigmented beeswax. Each new painting is another opportunity for a technical experiment, whether the focus is on a new blending method or trying out a new color harmony.
Ultimately, my work is not about pictorial invention to address social issues, etc., but rather to entertain the eye by recording, through observation and rendering, the play of light on a variety of materials. Maybe its fun
