Encausticâ€”the use of heated beeswax and pigmentâ€”is a traditional technique that is enjoying something of a renaissance. Itâ€™s both highly tactile (with its often thick-textured surfaces) and wonderfully organic both in surface and in fragrance. The earthiness of it makes a great medium for Grace Carol Bomerâ€™s In the House of My Pilgrimage. The artist notes that a line from Psalm 119:54, â€śYour laws are my songs in the house of my pilgrimage,â€ť has been partially carved into the wax-covered Hebrew text. â€śJesus, the Word Incarnate, gives us life and words to live by,â€ť says Bomer. The work is in a traveling exhibition organized by Christians in the Visual Arts.
