Martin Kline’s work references Western and Eastern cultural practices, drawing from art history, philosophy and nature. He is mostly known for his work in encaustic, the mixing of pigment with bees and synthetic wax. A technique that is as challenging to perfect as it is compelling to behold, Martin creates incredibly textured surfaces where the works become a phenomenological experience for the viewer. Kline’s work is the subject of many critical essays by noted authors including Carter Ratcliff and Barbara Rose. His work is in many private and public collections here and abroad.
