Photo-Encaustic: They Often See Her By The Barn
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 don't remember where I took this barn photo, but when I discovered it on my camera, I got chills..it just looks like something went awry and there is an energy that haunts it. Our ghost is from the British Library's online collection.
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.
