|The Nude in the 21st Century|
From my fascination with observation of the human figure comes this series of multi-media images. Each piece begins with the one drawing that I don't want to stop looking at, shapes and shadows that seem to express a truth of the body.
This becomes the foundation for imagery suggested by that person, this place, this time. Beginning as watercolor on mulberry paper, the finished work also has hand drawn and stamped patterns and collage elements. Final unification is fused onto wood panel with heat and beeswax, an encaustic finish.
