Nadia Alenov

St. Paul, MN

Artists bio available upon request

With encaustics I have the ability to define and enhance the atmosphere within a photograph. I'm always hunting for the perfect shot, aiming for an emotional connection within a scene or object. I explore texture by building up layers and carving into the wax, elevating the visceral qualities of the image. Encasing a photograph is the preservation of something precious. Encaustics seals in the nostalgia.

Born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, Nadia Alenov graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Her encaustic photography captures the beauty of the seasons and details of nature. She is a full-time photographer and encaustic artist and keeps her studio in St. Paul.
