Published in conjunction with an exhibition devoted to the encaustic medium, Waxing Poetic: Encaustic Art in America examines a painting method first used by the ancient Greeks and Romans. The word "encaustic" derives from the Greek term "enkaustikos, " meaning "to burn in." The basic technique calls for dry pigments to be mixed with molten wax on a warm palette and applied to any ground or surface. A heat source is passed close to the surface, burning in and fusing the colors. Currently enjoying a widespread revival among painters, sculptors, and even printmakers, the encaustic medium's resurgence has been bolstered by the availability of commercially prepared paints and the availability of electrically heated equipment. In this lavishly illustrated volume, featuring more than too art works, Gail Stavitsky examines the twentieth-century encaustic renaissance. She discusses the work of such well-known artists as Jasper Johns, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Lynda Benglis, and many others who have turned to this ancient medium to express their aesthetic, philosophical, and environmental concerns. The other two essays in this volume are "Encaustic Painting and Revivals: A History of Discord and Discovery" by Danielle Rice and "Encaustic Painting as a Contemporary Paint Medium" by Richard Frumess.

Encaustic is an ancient medium that dates back to the Greeks and uses hot pigmented wax. It has been since artist Jasper Johns and the Abstract Expressionists that encaustic has become more accessible and popular today with artists across the country. It offers a luminosity and versatility that is different from other artistic mediums today. The exhibition is a curated selection of work from a group of talented artists in the Detroit area who are successfully incorporating encaustic in a variety of unique and dynamic ways as part of their artwork. This catalog provides an opportunity to see more of this medium-which is still largely unknown among the general public-and see how it is being re-imagined in contemporary art.

From beehive to hotplate to the artist's hand, encaustic has evolved as a versatile medium applied to almost every artistic style. A long-overdue look at a newly popular art form, this bookexplores 79 North American and international artists' feelings about their work inencaustic and how they use it to express their inner worlds and theworld around them. Eight chapters organize the artists by geographical region and focus on how the heated beeswax and resin material is used to create seductive, skin-like surfaces and rich, layered membranes. More than 2,000 years old, this cross-disciplinary medium ranges from painting to sculpture, assemblage, collage, and printmaking and encourages risk-taking in a way that other materials do not. Its inherent contradictions--it can be hot or cold, malleable or solid, opaque or translucent, layered or thin, permanent or fragile--make it all the more fascinating.
