Toby Sisson's encaustic paintings
I had the pleasure this past weekend of seeing the artwork of Toby Sisson at the air sweet air gallery in St. Paul, where she had a one person show. Toby was my student many years ago at The College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, and it was very good to see her again. After CVA she went to grad school at the University of Minnesota, and she is now an Assistent Professor of Studio Art at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. It is very gratifying to see what she has accomplished. She has a rare gift. She is also working in a rare medium, encaustic. It is an old technique of working with wax on panels, and with it she creates a wonderful surface of texture and light.

These paintings might seem so obsolete but they have a thousand meanings depicted and encrypted in them. This is why people find it very interesting. The artists of those days were not only just painters but also human beings of great knowledge and values.
