Sinopia is proud to introduce our
February 2011 Artist of the Month: Eileen P. Goldenberg. Eileen was born
in Brooklyn NY. She has called herself an artist since the age of 5,
and has a lived in San Francisco for over 35 years. She holds a BFA, MA
and MFA in art.
She uses encaustic paint, (a medium made of pigments suspended in a
molten mixture of beeswax and damar resin.) The luminous, translucent
quality of encaustic has allowed her to develop a system of painting
that is unique. Her newest works are in the Landing and the Array
The thousands of
tiny orbs seem at first to be identical, but like humans, they are in
fact all distinct and individual. Look closely and you can see the razor
sharp outlines that contrast with the soft blending of luminous subtle
color. I meticulously add layer upon layer of molten wax, submerging
feelings that will later be revealed, giving them a life of their own.
