Marcia - Marcia Crumley

Marcia Crumley

My landscapes have always been celebrations of color, and my recent focus on encaustic paintings has enabled me to incorporate more depth and texture into my work. I love the meditative processes of waiting for the wax to melt, slowly building up layer upon layer of paint, fusing the layers with a blowtorch, and then carving into and scraping away differing layers. Encaustics is a very tactile medium, and I use pottery tools to create texture and patterns in my paintings, bringing me back full circle to my favorite childhood pastime of throwing pottery on a wheel. My art has been written about in The Boston Globe, Art New England, Cultural Adventures 2021, and Maine Home + Design.
