What does the encaustic technique means?

Encaustic – Or simply a painting with hot wax.

„In the beginning, it was wax.“ It sounds simple, wax is known to almost everyone today. At least from school art subject. But for this purposal there are not used just ordinary wax crayons , ordinary papers and paintings are not created by simple brushstrokes.

This technique is quite exceptional, technically unique, enabling deep expression. It requires patience, blending with the soul, but that is the reason why it is very close to me and has had my biggest attention in recent years.

Encaustics was known around 100 AD. Beeswax was dyed with basic colors from natural sources and is therefore one of the most original painting techniques. For thousands of years, it has been neglected and used only rarely.
There are a few authors in history who paid attention to this technique. It was rediscovered worldwide in the first half of the 20th century. But the cost of using it was high and the work with heating the wax was also complicated. Preparing for the process itself was an art. Only few people wanted to go through it. And until 1990, was encaustic technique completely unknown to our area.And now you can „experience“ the miracle of encaustic art with your own eyes right here ony my exhibition. My enthusiasm for it was born more than 10 years ago. It has not disappeared till now and I hope that the sophistication that this technique offers will excite you as much as it did me then.

Enjoy great time!
