Sierra Wax Artists Presents:
Jaya King: The Energy of Monoprints
Please join us on Sunday, Oct 16th @ 1:00pm, University Art, J Street, Sacramento for this *free event. (*although…gotta say, a donation would be pretty awesome)
Jaya will share her thought process on how to begin a new series of work and the steps to prepare for an exhibition. She will demonstrate her behind-the-scenes technique of loosening up before jumping into a final painting by creating an assortment of dynamic encaustic monoprints on her aluminum palette. She moves quickly through each monoprint in order to capture the raw energy of movement, line and composition. She will also show how to use Sumi ink to bring the monoprints to the next level. Using this monoprint practice Jaya will describe how you can focus your energy to create more powerful artwork.
Jaya King is a professional artist and California native based out of Sacramento who has been showing, teaching, and demonstrating her work since 2003.Her dynamic encaustic abstracts marry both balance of technique and personal connection to the viewer. Her love affair with encaustic extends far beyond the gallery wall. Jaya regularly lectures across the Bay Area with an emphasis on technique, personal growth and exploration through painting. Her popular hands-on painting workshops give students the opportunity to grow as artists and express their individuality. In the summer of 2016 Jaya developed an encaustic scholarship program, which gives high school students the opportunity to explore this amazing medium. Her enthusiasm for painting is infectious and it propels her and her students down a path of inspiration and understanding through creation.
Recently she was featured in Sacramento’s Inside Publications magazine. Her work has been published in Splash 11: New Directions, Incite 3: The Best of Mixed Media, and in Art Journey Animals: A Collection of Inspiring Contemporary Masterworks (available in 2017). At age 24 she was invited to do a solo show at Stanford University and is in the permanent collection at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara.
Talk about WOW! You don’t want to miss this month’s meeting. There is no RSVP at the moment, so please plan to show up early.
