Encaustic on panel
20" x 20"
Melissa Tseng is a Toronto-based visual artist specializing in encaustic painting. Through her work, she explores the juxtaposition between complexity and simplicity. Her paintings, which may contain as many as 30+ layers, possess a complex network of indentations and mark making in its underlayers. Yet her work is recognized for the minimal vibrant shapes that cover its translucent surface. Often simple from when viewed from afar, those who take the time to look more closely can see a much deeper history. Melissa’s encaustic compositions are collected across Canada, the United States and South Africa.
