Jeffrey Hirst combines encaustic and silkscreen, a technique not often seen (perhaps because he pioneered the approach), literally building these paintings on deep, beveled, irregularly shaped sculptural supports. Abstract, visceral, and packed full of evocative content, these paintings confidently engage both body and mind.
