Loving Joss Paper

It's been a long time since blogging but I have been working away.  I'm really into joss paper at the moment, enjoying its texture and colors.  These two books are currently being exhibited until September 7 in the Unbound Vol. III exhibition in Woodstock.

Experimentation has led me to tearing and dipping the paper into beeswax to get a wonderful texture and different quality of color.  These pieces illustrate some different ways of assembling the pieces:

This piece, titled Fields of Gold, is part of the Pompanoosuc Mills exhibition in Thetford, VT that opens tomorrow night.
