encaustic collage on cradled wood panels
Twelve 10"x10" panels

Lots of texture! A series of twelve 10"x10" pieces on cradled wood panels make up this encaustic mixed media piece. In the photo they are hanging spaced approximately 1.5 inches apart making it 33x45, this can be adjusted to fit your space. Additionally, the bottom 3 (#10, #11 and #12) can be used to the right of the arrangement to make the display 3 horizontal rows.
Each shape is hand cut from natural fiber hand-made papers and then suspended between layers of clear encaustic medium to create a thick translucent surface which draws the viewer into the piece. In areas where the wax application is thickest there is a subtle golden depth of wax atop the creamy white background. I use a torch to manipulate and fuse the wax this gives my surfaces a beautifully textured finish.

Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin), lokta and mango paper, gesso and oil on cradled wood panel. Signed, dated and titled on the back of one, each of the other pieces are numbered. The edges are painted white. Each piece in this installation has hanging wire and is ready to hang!
