seams of the fog

Encaustics

The fog covers and reveals to us glimpse of the city we live in. In this series, Seams of the Fog, the collage base layer is composed of waste items such as seeds, junk mail, plastic and foil packaging, and cosmetics. They’re buried by layers of beeswax and pigment and then etched away to reveal the hidden intent underneath. There is a tension between the hazy uncertainty of the surface and the intentional, well-defined seams.
