Three-Dimensional exuberant works of arts by LeRone Wilson are currently waiting to take you on a journey of self discovery and awareness at Gallery Nine 5. The multi-faceted exhibition titled ‘Universal Journey’ composed of various geometric encaustic paintings serves as a guide through a voyage where constant questioning, learning and soul-searching is require to truly reach one’s calling, spiritual nirvana and “aha moment” for both the artist and the art watcher.
“Through his work, Wilson highlights this journey while also adding his own perspective not just as an artist and as a storyteller, but also as an African American in search of a spiritual and cultural identity ⎯ an identity that has been distorted and buried in the sands of time.”
Wilson uses the encaustic painting technique, also known as “hot wax painting”, a combination of heated beeswax and colored pigments. The consistency of the mixed ingredients allows the artist to freely mold and create textural and vibrant paintings full of movement with sculptural proportions.
To see the rest of the works on display and to ignite your own journey, visit Gallery Nine 5 on 24 Spring Street. Universal Journey will be open to the public till March 6th, 2016.
