Katja Wittmer has been exploring the ancient medium of encaustic, where beeswax and resin are melted, coloured with pigment, and then solidified again. This exciting medium offers a huge element of spontaneity, and challenges the artist in merging the different wax layers in a controlled way. The various layers create an intriguing depth and luminosity for the viewer to explore.
