Joni Gruber, Deep South Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement In addition to my photographs and altered digital photos, prints of my encaustic paintings are available here. Encaustic is an ancient medium of beeswax, damar resin and pigments that is applied in its molten state. I am especially fond of using iridescent pigments and I use gessoed wood panels for my substrates.
Original paintings are for sale - please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org and for more information visit www.jonigruber.com. Thanks!
