From Linda Benenati's Duplicity series, this is Mademoiselles Fraise and Framboise... Linda creates magical environments with her encaustic painting and collage narratives. We love the delightful French strawberry and raspberry reference! Linda's work is inspired by various master painter-storytellers, the 20's and 30's, and of course, a love of anything French!
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.
