This series of small diptychs were constructed in the Hudson Valley’s R&F Encaustic Studio. Their abstract subject matter is culled from materials I was able to scavenge from my Red Hook, Brooklyn studio after it was flooded.
Flotsam and jetsam of past work literally floated to the surface of the waters, and in so doing, gave me the (unasked for!) opportunity to see, before me, geometric fragments from cutout copper plates, old, damaged prints, and the like. They float in wax, a material used for centuries for its preservation properties-and the drifting compositions are evocative of weather and elemental forces.
