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.
I created this series of encaustics with the idea of using my photography to show a scene post-ritual. The sacrifice is given. The blessings are cast. The Work is done.
The rune shown is fehu, with the original meaning of "money, cattle, wealth".
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.
