SUE KIRCHNER

 

"MINDING HER OWN BEE'S WAX"
 (Encaustic Paintings and More)
 

GALLERY OBSERVATIONS
 Hard as it may be to imagine, Sue Kirchner's third exhibit (in less than four years) is possibly more ambitious than her first two.  In 2011, Still Point Gallery was honored to host "Regresar", a highly successful show and Sue's first exhibit following a fifteen year hiatus.  In 2013, she presented "Water Media", a collection of water media paintings, combining inks, acrylics, pastels and collage. 

Over the last couple of years Sue has set up a new studio in Little Italy's Old School House and taught herself the art of encaustics, infusing them with both ancient and contemporary themes and her personal vision.  Sue's recent travel experiences have been the resources for much of the creativity in this exhibit.  And, her range of media and her scope of interests are continuously fueled by the passion to experiment and create.  Still Point Gallery is delighted to represent her work once again in this show.  

While the exhibit showcases the ancient art of encaustic painting, it also includes several highly contemporary digital paintings and monoprints.  The focus is clearly on Sue's encaustic works but the juxtaposition of other pieces falls under the umbrella of "new media art" and provides the viewer with unexpected continuity.  

Sue has won numerous awards, including the gold medal for best of show from the nationally prestigious Ohio Watercolor Society and a coveted Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist's Fellowship.
