Ask Heaven What It Sees
Photograph taken at my first time back at the Green-Wood gates since the pandemic began.
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.
