A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists

A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists


Nancy Yule

The aroma of melting beeswax. Intoxicating. Playing with fire. Seductive. Coaxing wax to alter its form; solid to liquid and back again, is what I love to do.
The term encaustic means to burn in. Encaustic wax is the combination of beeswax combined with damar resin, fused in countless layers. It is an enduring art medium with an unequivocal lustre and richness. I am humbled with the complexity of this organic material and am privileged to create artwork with it.

I work intuitively building layers of shape, colour, symbolism and abstract composition. I love blending the warmth of fibre with the encapsulation of hardened encaustic wax to reveal an unique mergence of mediums. Always challenging myself with breaking tradition and exploring new material combinations.
