Meg will be showing two pieces in the International Encasutic Artists show “Poetry Bleeds Rust” at the N.A.W.A. Gallery in New York City October 1-29, 2014.
This is a materials-based show, and the work in will feature rust, which complements encaustic beautifully. When exposed to water, whether as rain, fog, or dew, iron will oxidize into iron oxide, which is rust. From one point of view, that of the aesthete undefinedrust is beautiful. Yet it also a poignant reminder that everything is changing, decaying, leaving us no firm place to stand. From a more positive point of view, the nature of rust also assures us that because everything changes, anything is possible. Deeply understanding the nature of rust gives us the opportunity to embrace the truth of all things. Transformation is not only possible but inevitable.
