360 Betsy Eby (American/Oregon, b. 1967), "Ceonothus", 2003, encaustic on panel, signed and titled en verso, 24" x 18". Unframed. Provenance: Andrea Schwartz Gallery, San Francisco, California, private commission. Employing a difficult and time-consuming technique of multiple layers of melted beeswax and resin, pigments, and heat - what the artist refers to as "adulterated encaustic" - Eby creates evocative paintings inspired by the natural world. It is a precise process which requires great skill and control, but, as the artist herself says "I'm not following recipes. I'm following intuition. I'm pushing, but my experience gives me a strong prediction rate for what's going to happen".
