brenda rehrig is an atlanta based painter. she has shown work in juried group and solo exhibitions, had work placed in private and corporate collections, and has been selected into juried painting publications. her recent body of work reflects her love of and respect for the natural world, and explores texture and luminosity using the encaustic painting medium.
"my work speaks of nature and the rhythms of nature. each painting begins with a color concept referencing an idea or a natural thing. the materials used are natural beeswax combined with resin and colorants applied to a wood substrate. this combination of materials is applied and fused over a long expanse of time, the buildup is a paradox of intention and chaos. i am deliberately looking for expression without the use of imagery."
