"Three Places At Once" - New Encaustic Paintings Explore Archetype and Altered Consciousness

"Three Places At Once", Mixed Media on Glass, 29"x33", 2012, K Lenore Siner 

For the first time in Boston, K Lenore Siner will exhibit new encaustic paintings in a one month solo show at The Mission Bar and Grill, 724 Huntington Ave, Boston MA. The exhibition with open August 1st and run through August 31st. The opening reception is Saturday, August 4th from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm. K Lenore Siner's work is unique in technique and expressive in content. This series of portraits showcases her experiments with wax, oil paint, china marker and glass substrates - primarily wooden framed windowpanes. The paintings are themselves windows into each subjects emotional terrain - portraits in which Siner uses layers of wax to separate the delicately rendered figures from the imagined or archetypal imagery of snakes, birds and geometric symbols. Think the Major Arcana of the Tarot or the blurred but visceral content of dreams. Siner studied at Massachusetts College of Art and currently works as the Director of Peregrine Gallery in Providence, RI. Her work has been shown nationally.
