About the event
Alaina’s encaustic collages are comprised of repurposed fabrics, Japanese papers, pigments, beeswax and resin. In Alaina words: “I’m exploring the emotive properties of cloth as experience, tradition, and memory. I piece together cherished worn heirlooms, discarded clothes, religious garments, and scrapped linens from production factories. These repurposed fabrics are then gently fused with encaustic medium as I explore colors, forms, and lines through a patchwork of canvas. Now it is a map of my own making, flattened, frayed, and immersed in beeswax.”
The presentation will be followed by a tour of the gallery guided by the artist.
