This event has ended.

Hester, exhibiting for the first time with SEFA in NY, participated with the gallery at the Aqua Art Fair, Miami(2012). She is represented by a range of new work, including the Vessels series, on fabricated steel; the Relic and Portal series on fabricated disks of solid aluminum; and the Intertwined, Strata and Convex series on aluminum panels with a honeycomb core. Hester applies successive layers of acrylic paint to the various materials and then sands, heats and reapplies paint to create a depth of surface. Some surfaces are etched with brain scans and others are drilled. A final layer of wax and raw pigment pulls out the patina and richness of the layered colors.

In Amber George’s recent paintings, she continues her exploration of the soft and pliable encaustic medium to render multi-­tiered abstractions, structured with soft geometry and accented with bright blues and greens. Not surprising color choices, given the artist’s life long fascination with nature and pattern, and her inspiration from textile, the woods, foliage and all things nature gives us. In this fast drying encaustic technique, layers of wax dry and set before she adds another layer. The result is that the various strata remain submerged, rather than appear as layers built atop each other. Color and texture are glimpsed as if underwater.
