Scott Griffin’s Green Dress, encaustic on wood, 32 by 19 inches
I was down at Garde Rail on Saturday and caught a little show of these fading, modest things. They’re paintings in wax (encaustic), but the encaustic looks thin on the scrap wood. The outlines are fugitive; buxom, ’50s-styled women and dapper men are dancing and disappearing. Artists often describe their works as “dreamlike,” and I rarely find works of art actually to be dreamlike, but these are.
