December Artist of the Month:
Angela Duea Bio:
Angela Williams Duea is a visual artist living in the northwest side of Chicago. Though mostly self-taught, she took early lessons in oil painting from her Grandfather and photography lessons from her Uncle, both professional artists. During the Covid pandemic, she honed her encaustic painting skills and learned a great deal from other artists. She has shown her art at galleries in Grayslake, IL and Kenosha, WI.
Angela's photography often focuses on geometric shapes, the interplay between nature and man-made structures, and quirky little details that often go unnoticed by others. She experiments with textures, layers and abstract forms in her encaustic works. "What I love about encaustic is that I can build up textures or polish surfaces smoothly, add natural objects or embed photography in the work," she says. "As a result, the finished work constantly looks different as light plays across those elements throughout the day."
