Frozen In Time
Frozen In Time
In this fast paced world, where everything seems to be a constant blur and we all suffer from external overload from a variety of sources, there are times that we need to stop, center, and enjoy the moment. Frozen In Time captures one of those moments in time when the world stops, for just a moment, and our senses take in everything that surrounds us.
A beautifully textured canvas in muted tones reveals printed papers and other ephemera to create the background. On the left is a corrugate layer with a rust colored crackle texture with a resin frame with an antique European image. The right side features the same layering element in a different shape and size, topped with an antique pocket watch.
The encaustic collage behind the textured canvas is a cornucopia of vintage ephemera, printed papers and imagery. The elegantly dressed woman on the right pairs beautifully with the canvas palette, and visual interest is added with the mixed alphabet block text and the vintage glassine envelope to the lower left.
A beautifully hand painted wooden panel frames this piece, with an elegant metallic wash finish.

Special Care for Encaustic Artwork... Encaustic artwork is created with a combination of beeswax (note for those who are allergic) and damar resin. This art form has existed for centuries, but because of the natural properties of the wax it does require to be displayed out of direct sunlight in a temperature controlled environment.
