The last three solo shows of Melinda Felliniʼs artwork at Xanadu
Gallery featured hervibrantly colored abstracted landscapes in oil. Three years ago this
Portland, OR artist

began experimenting with encaustic, a heated beeswax medium known for
itʼs luminosity.

“I thought this new medium would enhance my search for looseness and

Wax by its very nature cannot be controlled like other mediums. I
thought encaustic

painting would be the perfect cross training for enhancing my oils.
With encaustic, I find

it more difficult to be precise; it lends itself to serendipity and
becomes the muse by creating wonderful unanticipated surprises,” says
Fellini. “I have been painting with oils for over 20 years and it has
always been a love affair. However, when I began working in encaustic I
could just let go and feel like I was playing again. It wasnʼt my
career, it was my play. This journey has infused new creative
excitement into all my current work.”

“I spent most of my early school years in one long daydream. School was
kind of a

black hole for me,” says Fellini. She now considers her work to be
reminiscent of daydreams.

All that time trying to escape school through daydreaming has finally
paid off.

She notes, “I now realize I was just gathering information.” Fellini
has spent so many

years gathering information from the numerous places she has lived that
she paints

mostly from her imagination now.

Color is what Felliniʼs paintings are most known for. It would not be
uncommon for there

to be 20-40 layers of paint in Felliniʼs art. There is a depth of color
and intrigue in the

work that is achieved through building up a rich patina over time.
Subtle color nuances

come through from the underneath layers.

Conveying a deep sense of mood through simplicity is an important
aspect of Felliniʼs

work. She feels that what her art gives the viewer is a window into
their own daydreams.

the Art of Dr. Lucie Marlo
Gallery is excited to introduce the geometric abstract paintings of
Canadian artist, Dr. Lucie Marlo.Lucie’s art is very popular in her home city of Victoria, B.C. where
she has exhibited professionally for more than 12 years. Her art has
become so well collected that she left the medical profession to pursue
her artistic passion full-time.  Last year, she and her husband
Victor bought a winter home in Scottsdale, where Lucie is now painting
for our collectors at Xanadu.

Lucie was recently a guest on a Phoenix talk radio program. You can
listen here, and get to know this talented artist: http://michellecorr.podomatic.com/entry/2011-01-26T13_41_05-08_00
