REPARATIONS

 Back in 2019 and earlier I worked on a series, Black Lives Matter. Struggling with my history of liberal comfort and deeper awareness of white privilege, the work was questionable at best. Not wanting to give up I moved onto a new series in the beginning of the pandemic, Reparations. This new work has been tedious and troublesome, and rightly so. Yet as of late a thrill of honesty and beauty is emerging. 

There are 14 pieces in all; eight are complete and I show them here:

ENCAUSTIC PAINTINGS: color-fields and collage/assemblages

Encaustic paintings are done on firm surfaces so the pure beeswax as primary ingredient does not crack. It is a great collage material because it does not allow oxygen to get into what is encased into the wax -- thus nothing disintegrates. Overall, I am not that successful with these paintings -- finding it almost impossible to bring the work to a place of lasting truth. 

The care of these art pieces is pretty simple: don't hang over the heater or wood stove, and buff with a cotton cloth a couple times a year -- this brings out a subtle lustre. Also, the surface is easily scratched so handle with care.
