"Unearthed", a Mixed Media, Encaustic Artist's Book by Colorado Contemporary Artist, Susan M. Gibbons


Encaustic Mixed Media Artist's Book

12.5" x 16.5"


This artist's book encorporates encaustic, metal, raffia grass, and dirt on Thai Bird's Nest paper.  Mounted on board, the colors reflect those of the earth:  blacks, browns, terra cottas, and white.  The swirling of hues is created by applying heat to fuse the layers of encaustic together along with the dirt.  The ripped area in the center of the piece reveals the metal underneath it.
