side detail showing raised dimension motif
From the series titled ‘Paper Aviary’, this minimal and dimensional mixed media work has a feeling of captured motion. An aviary is an enclosure for keeping birds. Made while under the restrictions of home quarantine, perhaps this body of work is an unconscious document of how we find ourselves feeling right now. The folded paper motifs appear frozen in a state of opening or closure.

Composed of my custom marbled paper and reclaimed birch plywood, it is at once graphic and subtle, colorful and raw, dynamic and sculptural, geometric and playful. The piece is dimensional and tactile in that the figure is raised and floating slightly above a cloudy warm cream background and is finished under a layer of encaustic wax. 

Encaustic art involves fusing heated beeswax and damar resin on the surface of the substrate. The results are a soft, barely opaque, molten surface full of nuance and character that catches the light. ⁣Beeswax encaustic is very archival. Care for an encaustic painting as you would any fine art painting.

Signed on the back, and ready to hang on a sawtooth hanger, or can be framed by the collector.
Works well as a diptych displayed with another piece from the same series
