Sweet Things & Nobelwomen – Linda Benenati
Sweet Things & Nobelwomen by Linda Benenati,
Linda Benenati has ventured into wonderland for her delightful encaustic paintings.
First Tuesday ArtWalk:
* May 2, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
* April 1 – May 31
Linda Benenati presents Sweet Things & Nobelwomen an art exhibition of mixed media works at Poet and the Bench.
Linda has ventured into wonderland for her delightful encaustic paintings. This ancient technique, dating back to the Greeks, uses heat throughout the process, from melting the beeswax mixture to fusing each layer of wax.
Linda’s encaustic medium consists of natural bees wax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap). She also uniquely incorporates collage elements, which add surprise and dimension.
Linda Benenati studied art and English and had a career in graphics and writing prior to discovering encaustic painting. She loves the interplay of images and themes and often begins an artwork with a simple lyric, a favorite phrase or vivid memory. Colorful, humorous and provocative, she is also inspired by the art masters, theater, 1920’s and 30’s collectibles, bees, dogs, cats and anything French.
