Brightly colored, multi-dimensional layers dazzle viewers of Cherie Duty’s artwork.
Built layer upon layer, the vibrance of pigmented wax and the movement achieved through heat is a unique composition that contributes to the work as a whole. Taking advantage of the organic qualities of encaustic – its mirror like sheen, and pliability, Cherie’s surfaces glisten sometimes with exuberant color and movement, as well as, the occasional mysterious fog reminiscent of a memory. Though both styles are very different subjectively, they both project a spirit of optimism with a nod to discovery.
Cherie Duty lives and works in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
