Irene Gut
Days Like This

Being born and raised in Switzerland I first felt a sense of being lost in the vastness of this big, beautiful country. The breathtaking landscapes and rich, natural beauty of my surroundings have always captivated me. I discovered my passion for painting with beeswax, known as encaustic medium sometime after I moved to Canada.
The tactile and organic nature of beeswax allows me to create textured and layered artworks that truly come alive.
I love the natural beauty of beeswax and the wide range of techniques I can incorporate into my work, such as collage, photo transfer, rich texture, or objects. I am fascinated with the vibrancy of the colours and at the same time there is a luminosity that only wax can have.
This luscious, engaging medium fits me, as it allows a play of ‘back and forth’ and opens up mysteries of the unknown. I have to let go of attachment and expectation as wax often has a will of its own.
Inspired by the intricate patterns and colours found in the natural world, my art seeks to capture the essence of nature’s beauty and evoke a sense of wonder and connection
