My first time trying to do an art box challenge! I used LITERALLY everything in this months #palettefulpacks (including the packing material). This month’s box was perfectly curated to work with encaustics! I’m still new to the medium but it was fun to play with all the new supplies. Merry Christmas everyone! #palettefulprompt#encaustic#christmasart#art
Maya Lin often incorporates scientific data in her work. In "The Deglaciation of the Laurentide," 2018, made of encaustic, she visualizes the Laurentide. ice sheet at its peak about 20,000 years ago, when it covered most of Canada and the northern United States. Its advances and retreats caused land erosion, shifts in sea level, and other topographical and geological markings such as the Hudson River and the Finger Lakes. "The Traces Left Behind," 2018, also encaustic, shows one of these remnants, physically carving the shapes of the Finger Lakes into the wall, simulating the gouging of the earth by the glacier. Displayed side-by-side, these two works create a kind of 3-D diptych, one convex and the other concave.
These are 2 of the works in the groundbreaking exhibition "Maya Lin: A River Is a Drawing," on view Wed - Sun from 12 - 5pm. Learn more at http://hrm.org.

So I did go into my studio this morning and the weaving just bugged me, felt the top right and left sides did not work so cut segments off, re-wove some pieces and then added and painted them. I am moving on and putting this one aside and will see if it stands the test of time. #annawagnerott#textiles#textileart#encaustic#weaving
