Kevin  Ghiglione

My artwork is an exploration of the passage of time, colour and composition. I am intrigued with aspects of lost communication, evidence of human habitation and use, and ’visual music’.

The ancient encaustic medium (beeswax and damar resin) allows me the ability to paint in an additive and subtractive manner. I can paint layer over layer and then excavate the medium for a sense of loss and discovery.

The abstract encaustic paintings are a textured colour field with deep lustre and complex textures. Through the layering of wax, elements have been hidden, damaged, lost, and worn away - and then excavated and rediscovered. The resulting the patina of distressed and textured surfaces suggests a history and a passage of time. I strive to find the emotional connection between the artwork and the viewer where the artwork becomes a meaningful and valuable object.

Kevin Ghiglione Description

Kevin Ghiglione's abstract encaustic paintings are inspired by the mark of mankind through time. His textural artworks suggest the passage of time through excavated vestiges of architecture, communication and evidences of wear.

Kevin is represented in Calgary by Gibson Fine Art and in Toronto by Muse Gallery. His work is in collections across North America and Europe.

A native of Saskatchewan, he attended the Alberta College of Art and Ontario College of Art where he studied print making, experimental media, photography, communication arts and industrial design. His working career has led him into various art related fields. Kevin brings four decades of artist experiences to his encaustic painting process. Kevin resides in Toronto, is married with three children and creates artwork full time.
