Flo Bartell is one of our talented Gallery Artists at Art Central Gallery. Please enjoy her encaustic artwork during your visits! She is also a member of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, The Painters Group and Central Coast Sculpture Group of SLOMA, Morro Bay Art Association, Surface Design Association, and International Encaustic Artists.

“I am driven to create, so I escape to my studio to savor the fragrance of wax, the rhythm and warmth of my torch, and the texture and rich colors possible with encaustic.

My paintings and sculptures evolve, even when I try to plan. I build up layers, then scrape them away, revealing a history. Then I add more wax. I experiment, construct, deconstruct, and redo until my art reveals my story.

I excavate stories, scars, and symbols and give them form with encaustic and mixed media. I work with encaustic because I am drawn to the smooth, glossy surface and the unpredictable and preservative nature of the medium.

The movement possible with hot wax and pigment is seductive and satisfying. I sculpt and paint with determination, passion, and with a spirit of exploration that I hope the viewer can feel in my art.”
