Encaustic and mixed media on long boards

50 x 54 x 1 in (4 panels)


To address the process of cultural encounter and entanglement,  encaustic on wood panels are used to create cross-cultural narratives by juxtaposing appropriated images from vintage children’s books and other found images. Mixed Media include pigments from Morocco and India, volcanic ash from Ecuador, Asian paper, metallic leaf, beads and circuit board components.  Each material becomes a cultural signifier.  Each painting contains 25 to 30 layers of encaustic, metaphorically representing layering of cultures, identity and places.
