With nods to various master painter-storytellers like Frieda Kahlo and her self-portraits, Linda Benenati paints magical environments with her encaustic and collage narratives. Maria Maria and Antelope Jack is a bright painting that infuses your space with good vibes, color and pattern.
Linda has ventured into wonderland for her delightful encaustic paintings. This ancient technique, dating back to the Greeks, uses heat throughout the process, from melting the beeswax mixture to fusing each layer of wax. Linda's encaustic medium consists of natural bees wax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap). She also uniquely incorporates collage elements, which add surprise and dimension.
