Shibori fabric is a particular art of Japan; it involves indigo patterns on white fabric and leaves a crisp and deeply satisfying impression. This piece is inspired by Shibori fabric. It began with layers of white molten encaustic on a wood panel, on which I layered a sheet of textured rice paper. On top of the paper are dots of indigo wax, melted to seep into the paper in a pattern and texture reminiscent of fabric. In the center is a raised field of indigo and white. The entire feeling is a centered, modern work that can enhance clean, contemporary decor.
My name is Linda Frueh. I am an artist working in encaustic, which is molten beeswax/resin/pigment. It has wonderful sculptural and translucency qualities, and with it I make original paintings and sculptures to grace your living or workspace. If you see something that interests you but would prefer a different size or color scheme, please feel free to contact me. It is especially satisfying to work with a client to create unique works that express your own style! A fascinating property of encaustic is that it can be used to preserve and enhance fragile materials - a special photograph, a handwritten letter, an old map or other mementos that have special meaning for you alone. I am happy to work with you to incorporate your materials into a lasting work of art. Thank you for visiting my portfolio!
