Untitled - Bev Milward


Borne of frustrations and internal wranglings, this ball of dark desires squirms across the reclaimed board.

Medium: Reclaimed Board, Wax, Collage and Paint

Dimensions: 61 x 31 cm, unframed

The Artist: Bev Milward

"I have been working in a form of encaustic collage since December 2019. I enjoy the way that detail can be built up quickly using paper and coloured wax. I work on boards found on the streets, using spray paint, images found in old books, beeswax, coloured wax and oil pastels exploring various techniques. Some boards are blank to start with others have existing paint and textures which I incorporate. I enjoy fashioning an idea or a fantasy out of objects that already exist. During the restrictions of the Covid-19 lockdown it has been an invaluable means of expression. Over time I hope, like my ceramics, they will build to become a narrative of this unprecedented time in all of our lives."
