Genson, Beth

I am an artistic explorer.  Although I have traveled, I don’t believe you have to go far to find an interesting subject to examine and attempt to document in paint.

Historically, I have painted with traditional oil paints. In 2016 I discovered encaustic painting - wax-based paints, composed of beeswax, resin and pigment, which are kept molten on a heated palette. Paint is applied to an absorbent surface and then reheated in order to fuse the paint.  

I enjoy making work with a purpose.  In 2018 I completed a series titled ‘Water Ways.’  Due to the fluidity of hot paint, encaustic is a challenge to control and there are always surprises along the way.  I found that it particularly suited my examination of water as subject matter and encouraged an exploration of how far the medium could take me.  Sale of the work from the series will benefit, an organization that is passionate about solving the water crisis in our lifetime.

My next encaustic series, ‘Broken Earth’ is designed to bring attention to the hazards of hydraulic fracking, a drilling process used to release natural gasses or oil.  Proceeds from sales will benefit the FreshWater Accountability Project.
