Artist Reception: Katherine Hart

Artist Reception: Katherine HartHart works with encaustic techniques to cast stories among layers of pigment and wax. Inspired by everything that surrounds or encounters her, she does not premeditate, but rather lets the materials direct the course of the work. The result is a composition emboldened by her organic pursuit, the inherent emotions and challenges of that pursuit—a vivid example of art imitating life.
