Patricia Dusman, an award winning artist originally from New York City and now residing in Doylestown, PA, studied printmaking and photography at Bard College. After a successful 20 year career in medical research she returned to pursue art making full time. She is currently focusing her work on encaustic painting and exploring working with wax in mixed media. Encaustic is an ancient method of painting where pigments are added to molten beeswax and damar resin. Each layer of encaustic paint is then fused with heat using a blow torch or other heated tools. Patricia likes to work intuitively starting with a vague idea of colors, forms and textures derived from nature. She enjoys working with encaustic media because it allows her to explore colors and textures, excavate back into previous layers and really exploit the versatility of the medium. The ability to infinitely go back and forth from molten to solid wax is very interesting but challenging at the same time. The translucent luminosity of the wax is also a wonderful property of this media which ignites her imagination.
Patricia has participated in art fairs, group shows and been published in international artist books, publications and exhibition catalogues. She recently curated her first exhibition, On Your Mark, at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill in Truro, MA during the 10th International Encaustic Conference, held annually in Provincetown, MA, and also wrote the accompanying exhibition catalogue. She was also a presenter at recent International Encaustic Conferences with her talks on safety practices in the encaustic studio. Patricia recently received an award for her painting “Fleeting” at the Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, NJ. Her work can be found in private collections in the US.
