Since ancient Egypt, artists have used hot beeswax, pigment and resin to create gorgeous encaustic paintings. A difficult medium, the style has faded out of popularity over the years, but Perrysburg artist Christine Deemer is bringing it back.

See how Deemer juxtaposes a contemporary, hyper-realistic aesthetic with this ancient art to create images of ocean waves during her solo exhibit, Hot Wax, Cool Waters: Encaustic Paintings by Christine Deemer, at the Perrysburg Municipal Building.

On view through January 5.
