Shawna Moore’s dynamic technique incorporates pigment and
beeswax, which is heated and applied to a wood substrate by
layering. The surface is a visual record of selected memories.
Moore considers her work as a diary of her own life experience
and contemplative journey.
The encaustic medium inherently has the ability to reveal and
obscure, creating mysterious surfaces and reveal- ing depth
within the use of line and color. Moore’s background in architecture
(University of Oregon, 1983-89) and her continual exploration
into the role of art and painting in purpose and place, have
helped create a unique vision in her life and studio. Shawna
Moore lives and works in White sh, Montana. She has been featured
in numerous solo, group and invitational exhibitions.
