ABSTRACT

I am both interested and annoyed by the endless trail of papers, bills, newspapers, letters, and advertisements to name a few, that are mailed and delivered to us. I pile them up in stacks, or discard them for the trash.

 

Grocery lists, sketches, journal pages, sewing pattern papers, funnies, architectural drawings, and calligraphic papers are my medium transported with encaustic paint.  My intent is to recycle these into appealing visuals improvising with line, color, and form. 

 

Encaustic, a mixture of beeswax and resin (tree sap) allows me to reveal, preserve, and conceal these collections of paper in the wax because of its transparency and translucencies. I draw and paint over these papers. It’s the hidden layers, and buried history that captures time and intrigues me.
