These are no ordinary prints! These are "plaster prints" that result in encaustic paintings. I use large scale collagraph plates and ink to make an impression in wet plaster on boards. When they cure and dry, I manipulate the relief surface with encaustic paint. The plaster enhances the luminosity and texture of the encaustic with structure and depth on my journey of self-exploration and expression.
"...What if inside the body another shape is waiting to come out, White as a quilt, loose as a fever, and sways in the easy tides there? What other anagoge in this life but the self? What other ladder to Paradise, but the smooth handholds of the ribcage?" -Charles Wright, California Dreaming
