Janise Yntema is already regarded as one of the foremost contemporary artists working in the ancient technique of beeswax encaustic, and by using original photography within her work has brought a contemporary platform to this historic medium.
The exhibition at the Cadogan Contemporary is entitled ‘A Sense of Place: Landscape and Identity’ and the works on display question the idea of landscape and truth, obscuring the boundary between photography and painting. Her use of beeswax ensures environmental concerns remain inherent within the works she produces.
The exhibition runs from Monday 28 January until Friday 15 February at the Cadogan Contemporary, 87 Old Brompton Road, London SW7 3LD.
Janise is originally from New York and received her formal art training at Parson’s School of Design. Her works are found in the collections of several museums including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Gutenberg Museum in Germany and the National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
