Sue Perks

Sue Perks is a Hong Kong based encaustic hot wax painter whose work explores the colours, patterns and textures found in the urban environment and the juxtaposition of urban imagery with natural forms.
By using the ancient process of encaustic painting which uses a medium derived from a combination of beeswax and resin dating back to 800 B.C., Perks is continually challenged by the balance between creating a controlled composition and intuitively allowing the free flow of the wax in its liquid form.
The compositional structure is pivotal, as she strives to achieve a sense of balance and unity. The numerous rich layers which have been heated and fused, scraped and burnished to explore these fascinating properties and the spontaneity of the melted wax, allow Perks to formally organize structured grids, whilst exploring the relationship of colours, textures and lines.
