Joint compound, cement, encaustic wax on abaca paper
26”H, 48”W

“I create unique art pieces from a number of mixed media materials. These panels are made of hand- cast abaca paper, which is strong and lightweight. A strip of fired copper laced with blue patina is attached to the panels. The materials used are joint compound on the top, stained sienna color, cement on the bottom, and encaustic wax over the cement to enhance the cracks. The integrated look is achieved by artfully combining these different elements to play off each other.”
