In the Header: Debra Claffey

Edges and Meanders, 2017; encaustic, graphite, pigment stick on Rives BFK paper, 24 x 24 inches

"In this new series of work, I am exploring my emotional and sensate connections to the natural world, specifically the relationship of humans to biota, by focusing on the edges of space and the depiction of time, delineated by line and color. The ingredients in this recipe are plant forms, leaf edges, human-made objects from the tradition of painted still-life, and the hand-drawn line and its implied motion."

  1. I am in awe! As a beginner in Encaustic I have been told to use very firm and stable substrates (e.g. birch wood) not paper or canvas. Would you have any comment about that? Thank you for the joy of your still-life! Irena D. Valles / idvalles@optonline.net
