Lyn Kirkland

A local Portland artist working primarily with encaustic bees wax. I am drawn to the olfactory properties of this medium, the smell, the texture and the way it changes under heat. I can embed collaged items, incise text, allow it to melt and re-arrange itself, moving across the surface picking up and repelling colour as it goes. I view my relationship with wax as a journey of discovery, pushing myself and it. Constantly experimenting.

I shall be exhibiting and demonstrating Encaustic Wax techniques during Dorset Art Weeks

Dorset Art Weeks 2018 26 May - 10 June
Exhibiting at the Hayloft Cafe, Pennsylvannia Castle, Portland DT5 1HU and demonstrating Encaustic Wax painting at my local studio.
