Linda Cordner

Three Graces has had the honor of exhibiting works by Linda Cordner twice before, in the Teeny Tiny Art Shows #3 and #4, third time's a charm! Linda has new work in our upcoming exhibition "Making Their Mark in Molten Wax". Here's a sneak preview...

Here's a bit from her artist statement: "I am very drawn to wax and its tactile qualities, the smell and viscosity of the medium are very different from other painting techniques. Creating organic forms is a natural extension of wax’s origin. Coming from a background in graphic design, I am drawn to certain color schemes and shapes, the repetition and placement being important to the composition. My paintings are made by layering multiple coats of wax which can completely obscure the under layers at times. I then scrape away areas of the wax to expose the compositions below."

Linda was recently featured in the new book Embracing Encaustic by Linda Womack, check it out here...and be sure to check out her new work in our show, opening this coming Friday, May 1st. The opening reception is from 5-8pm, refreshments will be served and stimulating conversation will be had.
