Nancy Natale, As Sweet As Honey, 2011, Encaustic, board, dominoes on panel, 36x36 inches, Header of PROWAX JOURNAL 21 (with courtesy of Nancy Natale)

A Few Words in Introduction

The PROWAX JOURNAL was a quarterly magazine for Professional Artists working with Wax and Encaustic edited between September 2013 and October 2018. There was 21 Issues. Maritza Ruiz-Kim was the Editor-in-Chief from Issue 1 to 11, Nancy Natale and Joanne Mattera shared the editorial job of the Issue 12 and Joanne Mattera was Editor-in-Chief from Issue 13 to 21.
Even if I knew encaustic since 2007, my encaustic conscience was born on a day of September 2013 with the first Issue of PROWAX JOURNAL. The most part of my encaustic culture come from the reading of Joanne Mattera's book and my long hours of reading the PROWAX JOURNAL.
I started that project a few years ago trying to figure out a better way to navigate threw this monument of contemporary encaustic history, the only free online publication made by artists for artists. First I did for myself a complete Table of Contents on a Word format. Then in 2021, after the 14th International Encaustic Virtual Conference, I asked myself "Why don't I share that work on my blog?". Three years later, there it is ! It was an important work, more a documentalist's work, a resurgence from my past studies in Library and Information Sciences (a part of my story...). I really had fun to it.

How to use that Table of Contents:
Click on the title of the Issue and you can read the entire Issue
Click on the title of the Section and you have the Section only
For each Section I mention names of the artists for their works or their words. If the name appears several times in the Section I mention her/his name one time only.

Tell me if you find some mistakes on your name or are there some dysfunctions by using the Table of Contents.
Feel free to contact me ( if you want a PDF copy of this Table or anything else.

So, going back to PROWAX JOURNAL... are you ready ?

Vincent Delrue.

Quelques mots d'introduction:

Le PROWAX JOURNAL est une publication trimestrielle numérique américaine pour les artistes professionnels utilisant la cire et l'encaustique dans leur travail. Elle comprend 21 numéros qui furent publiés entre septembre 2013 et octobre 2018. Je présente ici sur mon blog une table des matières interactive complète de l'ensemble des numéros et différentes sections du journal ainsi que l'ensemble des artistes ayant contribué à sa conception. Cette publication, complètement gratuite et entièrement réalisée par des artistes professionnels, est incontournable dans l'histoire contemporaine de l'encaustique.
J'ai débuté ce projet en 2021 et le voilà terminé ! Un travail important, plutôt un travail de documentaliste, une résurgence de mes années d'études dans le domaine des Bibliothèques et des Sciences de l'Information (une partie de mon histoire...). J'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à le faire.  
N'hésitez pas à me contacter ( si vous souhaitez une copie PDF de cette table des matières.
Bonne découverte ou relecture à tous !
Vincent Delrue.
