Brimicombe, Dawn

The Jurassic Coast remade in hot wax, it’s possible that Dawn Brimicombe has hit upon a brilliant combination.  Her methods and materials have an affinity with her subject – cliffs and stones and mud and sand can be shaped oddly and worked upon and so can encaustic was medium (filtered beeswax and damar resin) – which Dawn heats and fuses and scrapes and cuts – and her works also carry the glow of happy memories – like pebbles that stay wet and sparkling in the sun.

Dawn has exhibited widely across the UK over the years including group exhibitions at the OXO Gallery and the Cork Street Gallery in London, she continues to work from her Studio on the East Devon/Dorset borders where she is constantly inspired by the sea, the natural world, organic formations, colour, line & texture.

Starting up

Hi, I’m Susana F. Blanco, an artist and researcher.
I am currently collecting data and writing up my dissertation to get my International PhD in Fine Arts.

The main topic of my thesis is as follows:
“The BEESWAX used as material in Arts and its applications from the 20th century to the present”.

I would like to publish here all the data collected to share, not only with the researches collective but with everybody.

I think that beeswax is a wonderful unknown gem that many people do not know yet and I will try to discover it to you here.

I also work at the Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (Interior Design Department) and, when I show this new technique to my students , they are fascinated.

I will write the thesis in Spanish because I am from Fine Arts University Complutense of Madrid (UCM), Spain. Anyway, here I will share it in English because it is the most universal language.

Please, do not hesitate to ask, comment and even provide new information because this will be very useful for my work. I would really appreciate this 🙂

I will also share my practical research with my encaustic paintings here:(

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Also that it will be useful that you share it with others because this is the main purpose of my work:
sharing valuable information.

Thank you!
