I have three pieces at the front of Archway Gallery in June for our “INK&IMAGE 2015” exhibition.

IMG_20150601_090529[1]My pieces were all created by pressing ink through or over cardstock cutouts onto rice paper which was then adhered to gessoed birch panels. Tinted or un-tinted encaustic media was then layered over the work, fusing with a blowtorch, buffed to a high gloss, then mounted onto custom-made float frames.

Titles were reflective of my having to whittle down from a dozen raw prints to a Top Three for this show at the same time “RuPaul’s Drag Race” was about to crown its winner from their own Top Three drag queens with colorful names: Pearl, Violet Chachki, and Ginger Minj.
