“Transcendence” by Elina Zebergs, encaustic 18”x24”

Elina Zebergs is a long time oil painter, muralist and encaustic painter. With a strong background in architectural drafting, a degree in art, and an artist father, she has also worked in colored pencils, watercolors and pen & ink.

 

 

“Spectacle” by Elina Zebergs, encaustic 16”x20”, encaustic 16”x20”

Her enchantment with the ancient art form of encaustic painting started over 8 years ago. Elina Zebergs enjoys exploring abstract nature images that have been creeping around in her mind for many years, and finally has found a medium where she can fully express her visions. 

 

Q: What is encaustic, you ask?

A: Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. Encaustic painting was practiced by Greek artists as far back as the 5th century B.C. Encaustic had a variety of applications: for the painting of portraits and scenes of mythology on wood panels. The Greeks applied coatings of wax and pigment to weatherproof and decorate their ships. Mention is even made by Homer of the painted ships of the Greek warriors who fought at Troy.

“One of my favorite subjects to explore is nature in an abstract and non-objective approach.  My references are from memory and dreams. I avoid using reference photos so I do not constrain myself in how I express my feelings within my work. I know that I am just glazing over the surface of what is possible in this medium and I am still flexing my creative wings to push the waxes, and my own internal boundaries.  Even after 8 years, I still feel like a novice when I am creating with encaustic medium and I am obsessed.  It is the first time in my artistic profession that I have worked in a material where I do not over-analyze and obsessively try to keep control of what I am creating.  The wax and heat have their own “spirit” and I can relax and let magic happen.”  Elina Zebergs

 

Elina Zebergs offered an artist lecture during the opening reception of OUTSIDE INTERESTS.

located in the Historic Gilbert Block Building

August 3-25 Exhibition

 OUTSIDE INTERESTS featuring local painters and artisans hugely impressed with the wide-open, majestic vistas of the Pacific Northwest. Selected art, new original work, conveys nature’s shifting moods, with no human presence visible. Artists include Paul Brent, Melissa Jander, Sharon Kathleen Johnson, Bev Drew Kindley, Martha Lee, Gretha Lindwood, Ron Nicolaides, Susan Romersa and Dale J. Veith.

Welcoming new artists:  oil painter Vicky Combs-Snider, glass artist Christine Downs and encaustic artist Elina Zebergs to the gallery.

Elina  has been pushing her own personal artistic boundaries and not being quite the purist in her desired mediums as is shown in her new works the blending of many materials within her encaustic pieces. Working in a non-objective style, she allows herself to explore how the mediums play with each other and how she can create new textures, color play and rhythms on her canvases.”
