Christine Sajecki is an artist living between Baltimore, Maryland, and Savannah, Georgia, and is native of Connecticut. Sajecki’s encaustic paintings are dreamy and sometimes allegorical explorations of her surroundings, and informed by history and storytelling, social engagement, urban foot paths, and the body and behavior of the materials she uses.
Encaustic is painting with molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin and pigments. The process translates literally as “to burn or melt.” Encaustic is Ms. Sajecki’s favored medium. “Encaustic is my home. It's almost like a living thing- its warmth, its body, its behaviors- and painting with it engages all the senses in ways that other mediums don't. Encaustic is so tactile, so physical, and so malleable.”
Christine graduated from Savannah College of Arts and Design with BFA in Painting. Her works have been shown in numerous venues and are among many public and private collections.
