NEW ENCAUSTIC PAINTINGS: MARCEL O’CONNOR

5th October – 29th October

‘The ancient art and traditional techniques of Wax Encaustic combined with an Abstract Expressionistic approach’
Marcel O’Connor is the recipient of a major award from the Jackson Pollock Foundation in New York. He will be showing new paintings this October at the Fire Station Creative.

Marcel’s mixed-media pieces combine beeswax, microcrystalline wax, resins and oil paint. These are fused with heat to create rich, semi-translucent surfaces of subtle colour sensations.
