PROGRAM: Jeff Schaller—Encaustic
Using lost and found images, words, and language, Jeff Schaller’s goals are to paint with a precision and intricacy not normally found in encaustic paintings. His approach is with a vision towards expressionistic and contemporary, instantaneously setting powerful brush strokes that evoke an emotional connection of the viewer to the past and reflect on their sensibility in the present as a result of their memory. He wants people to bring their own thoughts and feelings into his artwork.
