Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present Luminous- The Encaustic Work of Tom Brydelsky. Brydelsky's mixed-media encaustic paintings are an investigation into the nature of perception, memory, and the living environment.  Composition, atmosphere, and the unique settings he encounters all contribute to these works.

Initially, using a series of photographs he has taken, Brydelsky manipulates a picture digitally, incorporating various textures and colors to re-invent the feeling that a particular environment or object evoked.  The resulting image is printed using archival inks and paper, mounted onto a wood panel and becomes the base for an encaustic painting.  The translucent quality of encaustic directly applied to the surface augments whatever atmospheric condition the image holds. In addition, it is a media that allows for a broad range of surface textures and, by its very nature, speaks of the fragility of life and memory.

Born in 1957, Tom Brydelsky lives in New York. His works have appeared in galleries, art fairs and non-profit spaces throughout the U.S. and Europe and are included in many public and private collections.
