DESCRIPTION

Otella Wruck’s recent encaustic works are hybrids of abstract paintings and relief sculpture.  The artist builds up her surfaces with wax and pigment and then carves back into them, revealing the underlying history of the process as well as the purity and beauty of the materials.  She also uses the resulting debris from that process to make a related series of pieces constructed from those discarded scraps.  These works continue Wruck’s long-time interest in labor-intensive processes and the spiritual rewards that are gained from their practice.  Her work is always unique and engaging, full of life and mystery.
