Tony creates art using the ancient technique of encaustic painting. Encaustic painting dates to the 5th century B.C. and involves fusing together numerous layers of molten beeswax, tree resin and pigments. His paintings convey a sense of time and order by creating three-dimensional surfaces through the process of applying multiple layers of encaustic medium. The order and characteristics of each layer of molten encaustic medium applied-the depth, opacity, clarity-determines what is visible and what is obstructed from view.
