Photo encaustic

Photo encaustic describes the process of embedding photographs or imagery onto an encaustic surface, giving a two dimensional image texture and atmosphere.

With the loss of loved ones often comes the inheritance of the family album. Favourite photographs are resurrected or even discovered anew. Personal response to the imagery gives them a new dimension, depth and context.
Adding a photograph and re-creating it’s context is very powerful. Allowing the wax to seep through layers and create nuances not easily achieved digitally.
