Peter Blackmore: “My Encaustic Journey” at Visual Arts Centre
Peter Blackmore’s artwork is from his heart and soul. He works mostly in encaustic and each piece is as much about touch as it is visual. When painting with other mediums he often uses
his fingers because then he is closer to the work
— feeling the painting emerge and feeling the flow.
Peter uses a small hot iron or torch to burn in the images. The outcome is always a bit unpredictable and that is what he likes. The love of encaustic art and the exciting journey it has taken him on.
