Banter by Victoria Foster Harrison

6 x 12 inches, mixed media

“Banter is an exploration in Asemic Writing and Mark Making, created with paint, ink, gesso and colored pencil. A contrast of expressive swirls and wonky letter forms, almost as if generations were speaking to each other.”

‘Start each day with a spirit of adventure to encourage discovery’ A working artist and workshop instructor from the Pacific Northwest, Victoria specializes in Encaustic Printmaking (creating one-of-a-kind monotypes with beeswax and paper), and embraces the wabi-sabi theory of “perfectly imperfect” in her monotypes, urban collages, contemporary landscapes and paintings featuring mark-making and asemic writing. A right brain – left brain thinker, her work is a combination of active detail along with calm atmospheric fields of soft rustic texture. Encaustic printmaking is a contemporary process with a refreshing approach. Free, fluid, fast and fun, touching a warmed palette with pigmented beeswax and manipulating the flowing strokes with tools, naturally result in exploration at deep levels. A sheet of paper is then laid on the wax and by making pressure with one’s own hand and without a printing press, the image is embedded into the paper. The direct result of the lifted paper is an original, one-of-a-kind monotype.
