I took the original picture over the summer of 2021 at Green-Wood cemetery. It was just before a Death of Classical event and was one of my first times back in the city since the pandemic. Since the vibe of that weekend and since has been one of “time to wake up, soul of mine” I changed the lettering over the door to reflect it.
Photo-encaustics are a perfect fusion of my photography and quest for a singular work of art. Each piece is unique and can never be recreated.
Photo-encaustics feature a real photograph which is transferred and fused into layers of wax on a thick wood surface using a blow torch. The effect is a ghostly, antique feel.
Encaustics are extremely archival, and will preserve an image as long as the work is care for properly. The subtle changes in the layers of wax over a piece, the bubble holes, and overall aesthetic lend to its unique, eternal feel.
On these thicker pieces, I have infused wax around the entire edge of the piece as well.
