Pavimenti: Poetry is the Life of the Soup
43 x 58 in.

I have been working on a series of encaustic paintings entitled “The Pavimenti Series: Reclaimed Objects”, in which I pay homage to old rusty parts and pieces of manufactured objects that have no memory of their purpose, and natural objects that are taken for granted because of their abundance, but which I have collected + reclaimed for re-use as models for paintings. For the grounds to support these objects, I paint tile floors modeled on those I have seen in Italy, because they are beautiful surfaces + because the tiles have gone through so many cycles of reuse.
