As an evolving artist, Rebecca Dunn of Danbury, Connecticut continues to experiment with different mediums, constantly exploring alternative methods to enhance her talents. Her current collection is created using encaustics, also known as hot wax painting. Pigments are added for color with over 20 layers of wax fused using a blow torch after each application. Other materials used are inks, shellac, milk paint, oil paint, metallic leaf and metal wire. The use of epoxy resin adds both depth and vibrancy. Wax is her preferred medium because it is challenging, unpredictable and creates unique pieces every time. She says “I create bold works with high contrast colors that invigorate me and I want to share that flow and movement with others.” Her work explores the intersection among chaos, coincidence and manipulation.
