Statement

Janise Yntema (born March 29, 1962) is an American painter working in the ancient technique of wax encaustic. She received her formal art training at Parson’s School of Design in New York City. Yntema was asked to join A.I.R. Gallery in 1991 and was included in numerous museum collections through the A.I.R. Members’ Portfolio. In 1997 she relocated to She was active in the Brooklyn Waterfront art scene and maintained her studio to D.U.M.B.O. In 1999 she relocated overseas and worked in London’s east end section of Shoreditch. In 2001 she joined Cadogan Contemporary of South Kensington and also relocated to Amsterdam that year. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, London, Amsterdam adn Brussels. Her works are in the collections of museums in Europe and the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as numerous private collections. She works and lives in Brussels, Belgium.

Throughout her career, Yntema has worked in various mixed media. Her early work was noted for its large scale and somber environments with materials both organic and industrial that included rust, iron filings and preserved plants. Whereas her early work represented almost an absence of color, her current work has evolved where light is the primary focus. She has worked almost exclusively with encaustics for the last 15 years. “As a painter, I find encaustic to be the most living of materials.” she states. “It is not close to nature, it is nature.”
