Encaustic paintings by renowned painter-musician Michel Samson at NV Studios. Samson, a native of Holland, comes from a family of artist in the culturally rich environment of the Netherlands.  Samson began drawing and painting as a young child to early success, as he was often recognized for artwork in competitions. His paintings have been featured in a solo exhibition at the Fort Wayne Art Museum as well as various galleries in The Hague and Amsterdam.

The word, "encaustic," owes its origins to Ancient Greece. It translates to, "to heat," and as such, the application of heat is the basis for encaustic painting. This ancient medium was used in Pompeii and Ancient Egypt during the first century AD.  This process, now uncommon, uses molten beeswax combined with dry pigments and natural resin.

“Here at NV Studio I am delighted to host Samson’s exhibition. His encaustic technique creates subtle surfaces that are luminous with a sculptural element,” shared Julia Collins, owner of NV Studio. “This genre is truly unique, and I am excited for people in the Sioux Empire to visit NV Studio and experience Samson’s creative works,” continued Collins.
