May 2003: Nick Gadbois bas relief in wax and cement
Nick Gadbois will be showing a body of work painted in non-traditional methods using pigmented wax and concrete. His work is actually bas relief that have weight and a highly tactile quality about them. The cement paintings have channels and images are etched into the surface and then flooded with thin layers of plaster and paint mixtures, etched and layered, thus giving it a textured feeling. His work was inspired from visiting ancient petroglyphs.
