Dawn Tekler original encaustic wax painting
"Bin Series: "Water"
Dawn Tekler earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Cleveland Institute of Art with a major in Photography and a minor in Video and Film History. She paints in encaustic wax.
Dawn: I am drawn to the idea of encasing the subject, so it can be studied at a later date. This is a theme that is carried over from my voyeuristic approach to my photography.
Through the layering of wax, adding color and texture I aim to create an environment which allows the viewer to bring to it, their own story and hopefully enjoyment of that journey and also with anticipation invite the viewer back over and over again to find different elements not noticed in the original viewing.
