TRANSFORMATION, new work in my one person show at Gallery A3, May 2017, features nine "constructs" of wall pieces combining encaustic paint and mixed media, found metal and wooden objects. Two different series are shown. "Space Out" is a series using squares or rectangles placed together aligned to allow space among and between shapes. Below, "Genealogy" uses the transformative nature of the butterfly shape with a center vertical part and two side sections. All work has a similar mixed media look but with a new color in my palette, indigo blue, to compliment my usual rusty orange-brown.
