The Fine Art and Frame Company is honored to work with so many magnificent global artists. Because of June's quick arrival, this month we sought to highlight an artist who's work feels breezy, fun, and vacation-inspiring, as we believe everyone is in need of that feeling right now.
Enjoy these beautiful pieces by artist Shima S., and let the cool waters rush over you, the sand cradle your tired feet, and the breezy air flow peacefully through your hair.
Shima's Process: Encaustic
"Nothing in the definition of encaustic describes its lusciousness; the fragrance of grasses and wildflowers radiating from melting pots of wax straight from the honey and the hive. Or, the sensuousness of this alchemical elixir of wax and pigment and its transparency, translucency and opacity." - Shima S.
This is Webster's definition of Encaustic: “A paint made from pigment mixed with melted beeswax and resin and after application fixed by heat." It is a unique and extremely expressive way of painting that creates real depth within a piece. "There can be up to 30-50 layers of wax in a single painting. There are no limits to the freedom and expression of encaustic," according to Shima.
All of these pieces are available for purchase. Head to our Contact page to get in touch with one of our Art Consultants to get your hands on one (or more) of these amazing pieces.
