An on going body of work I call OBJECT ASSOCIATIONS deals with reactions to items or objects that make connections to particular situations.
These situations are sometimes humorous, sometimes poetic and often cynical. The works are all mixed media containing the actual objects that make connections to something else.
Encaustic medium along with oil paint supplies the foundation for these assemblages. Textures are part of the subject matter and enhance the visual experience. Sometimes they are dragged, stamped, scratched or painted but always relate to the whole visual adventure.
