Openings Triptych

Mixed-Media Wall Sculpture

Created by Kara Young
Wall piece made of 95% hand cast abaca paper. When it has dried an is gessoed the artist applies a cement mixture which when dried quickly will create a beautifully cracked surface. Then she covers the surface with encaustic wax (bees wax and dry pigment ). This darkens better the cracks and makes a smooth blended surface.

A sand painted silver panel with different configuration of fired and patina copper on wood is placed in the opening of the panel. Sold as a triptych with one 5 Square panel and two Torn Metal panels, or individually. Each is wired and ready to hang and weighs 5lbs. Due to the nature of the work each piece is unique and will vary slightly.
