Exhibitions    Swarming to The Calyx in the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney

01.03.21 to 21.03.21

Exhibition at The Calyx from 1 to 21 March 2021.

Please note that the venue is closed on Thursday 4 March.

Marijke's third exhibition in Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney a temporary “swarming” to The Calyx. 

In this exhibition the artist has used a medium, called encaustic; the artist captures the vast Australian landscape in a truly unique way – from ancient and majestic rocks, vast plains and aerial views to the dancing and turbulent seas of our coastline. The works reflect her extensive travels throughout this amazing country.

Encaustic medium involves fusing layers upon layers of beeswax (mixed with resin and pigment) with a high heat source.  Other materials such as dyed silk and found objects such as shells, stones and leaves can be incorporated into this medium.

This medium provides the viewer with a truly sensory experience. The multiple layers gives works a luminous, ethereal quality, which retain the beautiful aroma of beeswax.  As these works are waterproof they can be safely touched, to feel the texture involved (from the smooth wax, to roughness of incorporated materials).

All works are framed
