origin uncertain

This encaustic collage/assemblage is called “origin uncertain” from a dictionary description that appears on its lower edge. The concept for this piece was to create a depiction of a file cabinet full of memories: sights, smells, textures, and fleeting visuals. From the child’s photo, to the wire-wrapped flower, to the disintegrating book spine, the memories are tucked tightly into a box.
