I ensure my pieces are museum quality by printing on 308 gram Hahnemühle fine art acid free paper adhered to a cradled board with archival glues. The print is then ‘entombed’ into multiple layers of wax and resin, and ‘interpreted’ with brush strokes or hot iron. The inks, prints, glues, wax are fully archival and produce museum quality work that will last for generations.
I approach photography in a painterly way with the encaustic process as an essential aspect of interpretation. I am fascinated by the texture and the internal luminescence that fine art photos project when encased in wax, and the tangible process of creating these works allows me to expand my images physically and conceptually.
