Mixed Media Art

Assemblage is the creation of 3D art pieces using a variety of found objects. The challenge to the artists is not only to envisage and create the piece, but to learn a wide variety of fabrication techniques. Assemblage requires knowing how to stick materials never intend to be fused, together.


Encaustic or "hot wax painting" is an ancient technique. I heat beeswax and an extender to the liquid stage, mix in pigmentation then paint the wax in layers on a wood surface. Using a heat gun to fuse everything together I embed collage items within the layers. The result produces semi-translucent depths within a very durable wax panel
