Corin Pinto – Artist’s Statement
When I was introduced to encaustic I immediately fell in love with its sculptural
qualities and the luminosity of the pigmented wax. The
process of layering, scraping and etching the pliable wax gives each of my paintings
a welcome depth and three dimensional textural effect. This, in addition to the
subtle nuance of the translucent wax, works well with the reflective themes of
My inspiration is nature. Through reflection on our place
in the natural world we achieve harmony and balance in our day to day, busy and
stress filled lives. I am captured by the simple wonders in the natural world
and aspire to transpire their unexplainable essence and emotive qualities in
the dreamscape of my paintings.
