PATRICIA KILBURG’s work is on display for the months of May & June. 
Here is a definition of encaustic painting: “Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.”
 
A recurring theme in my work is the ambiguity of time and space.  By suggesting an imaginary universe of macro and micro forms, I seek to suggest eternity, mortality, and the fragility of existence.  I combine simple shapes with complex texture to create “secret places” for the eye to go and the imagination to be triggered.  Often organic-like forms are combined with geometric shapes.  There is an emphasis on color and luminosity to portray the brilliance of nature in various forms.
