“Figures Faces Feet”
Encaustics by Eustacia Marsales at Delaware Arts Center Gallery
                                                                 An exhibit of encaustic paintings by Eustacia Marsales, “Figures Faces Feet,” opens on
                                                             Friday, May 14, with a reception from 7 pm to 9 pm, at the Delaware Arts Center Gallery, 37
                                                             Main Street, Narrowsburg, NY.
                                                                 Marsales uses the ancient medium of encaustic, a hot wax process, to create expressive
                                                             figurative images that are both personal and universal. Her evocative paintings work on
                                                             many levels, being both visually strong and emotionally charged.
                                                                 “Art is the process through which I view and attempt to understand myself in relation to
                                                             the external world,” says Marsales. “Photography and the figure are the basis of these aut-

                                                             tional and psychological forces play themselves out---acting and reacting, reaching and
                                                             recoiling, writhing and reveling in both pain and ectasy. The ensuing unconscious gestures
                                                             are recorded as digital images and used as a basis for encaustic paintings. Wax is additive
                                                             and subtractive, a push-pull of opposites that echoes the struggling rise to consciousness.

                                                             encapsulating the essence of life. The questions are ancient and universal. The visual
                                                             responses hopefully resonate with the viewer and reveal the common thread that binds us
                                                             together in the human experience.”
                                                                 Marsales received her MFA degree from New York City’s New York University and her

                                                                  The male figures in Michael Sell’s drawings are introspective and sensitively rendered with lush
                                                               oil pastels. Sell’s images resonate with the viewer, striking an emotional chord.
                                                                  “These male figures are autobiographical essays on internal states of being,” says Sell. “In our

                                                               true connection with others and ourselves. I am drawn to the most elemental aspects of the human
                                                               condition: the interior isolation and nakedness that is the most primal state of being. As Joseph

                                                                  The figures that I present are very still, very quiet, very modest and of normal physicality, not dis-

                                                               gives no sustenance and little context. The plaintive directness is there to be addressed; there is no
                                                               place for either the subject or the viewer to hide. I have not allowed metaphor or irony to filter the
                                                               dialogue between the work and the viewer.
                                                                  All my work is done on oil pastel on paper. The palette of complex grays and flesh-tones is mixed
                                                               from dozens of individual pastel sticks of saturated color directly on to the paper. The delicacy of the
                                                               medium echoes the fragility of the figures; the drawings are only marks on the paper, lacking even

things like boats, bridges, and architecture, but ultimately each piece
wonderfully eludes identification and is an abstract object. Another
sculptor, Jeanne Jaffe, makes work that refers to parts of the body,
but she uses her own personal funky language. Jaffe’s combination of
color and form creates a feeling of living pulse in each piece.
     Nahid Khakis’ black and white photographs offer a sense of peace,
solitude, and serenity. She manages to capture nearly invisible
moments in time. Also featured in the exhibit are perceptive pieces by
