In the Artists Own words: My approach into each painting starts with a color. I am passionate about each stroke that is laid down. After many layers of wax brushstrokes, I step back and objectively look at the composition from all directions to see what the painting expresses to me. I look to see a physical response in my work, especially a desire to reach out and touch the painting. It is my intention for you to have a sensory and a visual experience with this work.
About the Encaustic Process: Encaustic is a paint composed of beeswax, damar resin and pigments.: The term Encaustic is often used to describe both the paint itself, and the method for using it. Encaustic paint is applied molten to an absorbent surface, and then fused, (or re-melted), to create a variety of effects. Unlike other paints, encaustic is never wet or dry it goes from a liquid to solid state and back again in seconds, which means additional layers can be added immediately, without disrupting the composition. Once the surface has cooled, the paint has reached a permanent finish, but the painting can be revised and reworked with heat at any time... minutes or years later.
Jims move from Baltimore to the Jersey Shore left him deeply inspired by his new seaside surroundings and transformed the direction of his work. From the flat, distinct areas of color in color field painting, Inzeros work merges into a three-dimensional reference to landscape. He captures the diffused light and mist with a quiet and serene effect. His paintings consist of dripped and flung color under the haze and gaze of a transparent wash of encaustic on wood panel. They are mood paintings of an all-over color field with an exquisite sensibility for muted hues. Ethereal yet organic, his paintings convey a sense of spirituality and meditation.
