Tremain Smith. Patience and Victory. 2008

Tremain Smith is a very neat person, and I was lucky to meet her and see her in action when she was in residency at the McColl Center, here in Charlotte.

People label Smith an encaustic painter (one who paints with pigmented wax),  and that is only partially true.  She is a mixed-medium artist using oil glazes, collage and pigmented beeswax, and that is what makes her paintings so amazing.  They pop, they glow and they seem to shine from within.  Tiny details rise through semi-translucent layers and seem to reveal secrets to the viewer, making it impossible to not be drawn in.  As beautiful as they are digitally, it’s nothing compared to in person.  Find out if she’s showing in your area, and go see her work!
