Regina Quinn – February

Encaustics and oils with beeswax over watercolor on panel

“As a longtime resident of the northern mountains, my work is inspired by a sense of stewardship and deep connection to the natural world. Inspired by the landscape across seasons and at the edges of the day, I begin paintings with watercolors applied to gessoed panels. I then build opaque and transparent encaustic layers, carving and scratching into them with razor blades, knives and woodcut tools to create depth and texture. Next, I apply oils mixed with beeswax, enhancing texture and luminosity. Layering, carving, scraping and incising allow earlier layers to emerge, much the way geological and weathering processes obscure and expose evidence of prior eras, and as visual memories come into focus even as they fade away. I live in New York’s Northern Catskill Mountains after nearly three decades in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. My art career encompasses painting, photography, ceramics, printmaking, and theatrical painting, and I exhibit widely in galleries, art centers, and museums across the United States. I have a Fine Arts Degree from Trinity College, where I graduated with the Peyser Art Award, and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of Vermont.” -Regina Quinn,
