Jane Allen Nodine is a professor of art and director of the Curtis R. Harley Gallery at the University of South Carolina Upstate. In 1999 she was selected by the South Carolina State Museum and the South Carolina Arts Commission as one of the “100 Most Significant Artists in South Carolina of the 20th Century.” Her interest and research in encaustic has garnered much praise, leading to inclusion in Joanne Mattera’s 2012 book, “Encaustic Works 2012: A Biennial Exhibition in Print.”  Her 2012 solo exhibition in Wupperstal, Germany, is one of many both national and international shows she has participated in. Jane’s work has also been featured in numerous collections, including the South Carolina State Art Collection.
“Thermal Response” includes 22 encaustic on panel pieces. With no end goal in mind, Nodine lets the wax and pigment naturally resolve into inconsistent pooled, split and striated patterns. Colors vary from bright to dark, a variety that mirrors those found in nature.
