After the Show by Deb Gartland
Photo encaustic and mixed media
30 x 35 cm
After the Show is inspired by my collection of masks - and the number of ways I can incorporate them in to my artwork. It combines by my love of photography with my love of encaustics (encaustic medium is a dammar resin and beeswax mix painted with while molten).I wanted to create a piece that was reminiscent of a hard copy postcard - that not many of us receive in this digital age! Incorporating my photography (the mask) and mixed media components such as old stamps and feathers - all working together to show the pleasure of visiting a live show.
