Encaustic Paintings above by Juan Moreno, Texas Wax Austin

All four groups of Texas Wax — a regional encaustic painting society — held their first statewide group exhibit on Saturday, May 9th at Gallery M Squared in Houston.  It was an excellent show — the large gallery space was filled with one or two beautiful pieces from each participating artist.  Many of the artists from Austin, Dallas and San Antonio joined the Houston artists for the opening that lasted well into the evening.  After the opening, the party spilled over to our hotel for another couple of hours.

Many thanks to Max Harrison and Mike Kubis at Gallery M Squared for hosting our first Texas Wax members exhibition, and to the leaders of each regional chapter, who have worked for many months to organize this show.  Special thanks go to Gwen Plunkett of the Houston Chapter, who worked behind the scenes in Houston to make this event so successful through arranging the food and beverages with the caterer, and meeting with Max — the owner of Gallery M Squared — to arrange for the show and help him hang our work.  A huge thanks also go to Deanna Wood of the Dallas Chapter, who created our beautiful invitations, and to Sharon Kyle Kuhn and Kevin Kuhn of Austin who arranged a great deal on hotel rooms for the Austin artists, and transported our work to the show.  View photos below or at the Texas Wax website.

When it is working, you completely go into another place, you’re tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That’s what it’s all about.

Comments on My Paintings
  • Your painting reminds me of Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings. Although your painting reminds me of her work, it does bring about a different kind of experience. Her flowers to me are beautiful. But they also seem reserved, formal, almost abstract, not romantic in anyway, not even alive but more like something plucked and then frozen in time. Your work has some of the same shapes, and yet the relationship of the shapes to each other is different and not at all formal like O’Keeffe’s. There is more movement in your painting, more energy, more aliveness. (I’m not taking your title into consideration.) To me, I’m looking deep into the heart of a living flower.
