Waxybuildup

  1. 2. THE IDEA Create a two-person show using the encaustic technique. We brainstormed on a title that played on the idea of wax and came up with “WAXY BUILDUP : CLEANING HOUSE” We decided to interpret this theme each in our own way. We posted our progress on a blog - www. waxybuildup . blogspot .com .
  2. 3. THE ENCAUSTIC TECHNIQUE Encaustic painting is an ancient technique that involves melting beeswax and mixing it with a natural resin. The resulting painting medium can be mixed with pigment. Most often the molten paint is brushed onto the surface and each layer is fused with a torch or heat gun. Elements can be collaged into the wax and the wax can be scraped away.
  3. 4. I decided to take the approach to this theme from the inside out. I have been doing some personal-inner work and felt that this was the perfect opportunity for me to finalize and release some of the old habits and beliefs I had gotten rid of and honor the new points of view and truth that have moved into those spaces. I chose to use the image of the woman’s legs in red pumps as a metaphor for my process of killing off “the wicked witch” in myself that no longer served me. The other elements, images, and text represent new lessons learned and ways of “being.” TRAYC CLAYBROOK
  4. 5. When we came up with the concept and the phrase “waxy buildup,” I immediately visualized the stereotypical 50’s housewife – happy to not only serve her family and clean her house but look beautiful to boot. I used imagery and text that evokes the advertising aimed at the typical 50’s housewife – “saves time!” “…for your family,” and “clean and pure.” The nostalgic images and words elude to a happier, simpler time that most likely didn’t exist, except perhaps on TV.
