I am proud to be represented by the Maria Elena Kravetz Gallery-Argentina at this years event in Chicago ! Join us !
Handmade encaustic mediums and paints created at The Queen Bee studio by artist Tracey-Mae Chambers now available at Etsy !
Hollow. Buoyant. Full. Satiated. Absolute. Collapse. Ruin. Void.
An empty vessel embarks on a journey, becomes saturated with thoughts, visions, feelings and convictions,
only to fade into obscurity.
All living beings are vessels. Life runs through the veins of leaves as it does mammals.
We are all connected.
We are a collective.
We are vessels.
What are encaustics ?
Encaustic is the ancient art form of painting with melted beeswax mixed with Damar resin (tree sap) to make the wax more resilient and pigment for colour. I have taken this to a new level by using it as a sculptural medium. The results are lusciously coloured and are heat safe in normal home conditions. Treat these treasures as you would glass.
United Nations Commission
I was honoured to have been commissioned by the United Nations to create six sculptures which were used as the Partnership Award for the United Nations Environmental awards celebrating 30 years since the Montreal Protocol was implemented. This award was presented to five international recipients and one further sculpture will be placed on permanent display at the United Nations Environmental Headquarters in Nairobi in November 2017 in Montreal Canada.
