This series mixes digital photography with encaustic
painting. With these photo-encaustics, I try to to use the photographic image
as a starting point and then blend the painting and photo together. The wax of
the encaustic builds up and breaks away from the flatness of painting, in a
tactile way. At the same time, the photographic underlay brings a third
dimension, through the ephemeral quality of light.
