Rapture 3

Rapture 3 is part of a series of triangular pieces whose feathers are made from fiber, encaustic, paint and oilstick and in this case, waxed linen and wire thread, which create a haze of texture over this piece of fiberart. A curving wrapped stick anchors the piece at the top and evokes African masks.

Medium: Fiber, encaustic, oilstick, waxed linen, wire thread
