Fish Cake
encaustic and oils on wood, 14"H x 18"W
One only: $900.00

Gefilte fish, salmon croquettes, sushi—every culture mashes and molds flaked fish into a "cake". The result completely transforms the source. So garnish with a couple of scales.

I often say that I want my paint surface to look edible. The process of encaustic painting, even more than oils, feels like the icing on a cake. I like the marriage of content and medium. In all of my work I love to make visual puns.

The paintings can be hung individually or as an installation varying size and shape.

 

This painting is made with encaustic paint, a wax-based medium, so keep it away from the heat!
