  • Biography

    SHELLEY WUITCHIK- FCA
    Victoria, BC

    Shelley Wuitchik is an encaustics artist, originally from Quebec City, QC currently residing in Victoria, BC. Wuitchik describes her work as a reflection of her life: the rich "texture" of her family, the "ebb and flow" of the seasons and the "burning" of memory into time and space.

    "For me, painting with encaustic, creates a state of totipotentia: a latin term meaning the ability for all things. A totipotent cell has the potential to develop and differentiate into any cell in the body, be it skin, bone or even heart tissue. Encaustic painting is also filled with such potential. Since the medium is incredibly malleable and fluid, I am able to mix it with vibrant pigments and embed sculptural elements. I seek to illustrate the flow of water, the dense weight of the earth and the flashy and volatile qualities of fire. I hope the luminosity and movement of my work offers the viewer the same spontaneity and transformation I experience as I paint."
