About Victoria Primicias

'I like to create art that resonates with the quieter, more reflective nature of our being. Voluminous clouds, lapping waves, or a stooped, solitary tree evoke a momentary desire for rumination and solitude. It seeks to connect at a deeper level.'

- Victoria Angelique Primicias

I paint with beeswax to create luminous and serene landscapes using a bernzomatic propane trigger-start blow torch, heat gun, hammer, screws and nails. To paraphrase Picasso--from destruction, creation.

Born in the sixties into a family of politicians, businessmen and IT geeks, there were no artists. Not one. I am the errant gene. Even before I could read, my idea of a blissful afternoon was to sprawl on the floor and mindlessly cut out newspaper ads I found appealing. It's fortuitous then that, twenty years later and now living in Toronto, I learned that I could get paid for cutting and pasting. It was called graphic design.

I worked for many top design firms and in 2001, moved to Chicago. Marriage in 2007 and frostbite, while not interrelated, precipitated a move to North Carolina in 2009. It is there that I was introduced to encaustic painting, and was smitten from the start.

Encaustic paint is a mixture of beeswax, damar (a tree resin that hardens the wax) and colored pigment. The paint is melted at 200F and applied in 6-12 layers onto a stiff substrate like wood or tile. Each layer is fused to the layer beneath to create, in effect, a big ball of wax.

Encaustics' waxy layers create a luminous translucency unparalleled in oils and acrylics. Encaustic paintings are water-resistant and will not melt unless your thermostat is set at 150F.
