HERE is part of my Words of artwork which focus on one word that is featured with Scrabble letters as the title on the front of the canvas. HERE was created with the idea of finding your place, in that moment, in a particular place. It also has a deeper meaning, of all of us longing to find that one place that we can find our true self in.
HERE features rich textures and colors on the background, layered with up cycled corrugate that has a vintage map placed upon it and set with crackle. There are a variety of found objects incorporated into this piece including a flour-de-lys, metal shank piece, and a mini compass to help guide you to find your HERE.
This smaller canvas is set on an encaustic collage which features a variety of ephemera including vintage imagery, map themed papers, a punch card, Tokyo Metro listing, and more! All of this is housed inside of a hand painted wood frame with a subtle metallic finish.
SIZE: 18" x 18" x 2" (45.75cm x 45.75cm x 5cm)
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.
