LIMITED EDITION PRINTS: PERSONAL ARCHEOLOGIES

These works are  inspired by the abstraction of decaying walls captured in black and white photography by my father and one of his teachers Minor White. During that era, I witnessed my father participating in the Interim Photographic Critique Group and lived in the darkroom with him helping process film and make prints. I saw the beauty of decay and embraced the curiosity that abstraction invited.

The originals of this work are very fragile paintings that I worked through many stages - painting, collage, encaustic, burning and ultimately cropping - to reveal individual images. Originally, these were painted on newsprint with tempera paint and finished with encaustic.
