Canyon Walls Triptych M Plus OBC

Fiber Wall Art

Created by Kara Young
 These pieces are made of 85 percent abaca fiber handmade paper. When the pieces are dry, they are painted with gesso on all sides to seal the paper. Fired and patined copper is adhered to the paper, and a cement mixture is spread on the bottom 2/3 of the piece, below the metal to form the cracked surface. After the cement dries, it is carefully sanded, and the top 1/4 of the cement is stained with a thin wash of black paint. Encaustic is worked over the cement to create a deep, rich cracked surface. The top 1/3 is troweled and texturef with joint compound, then sanded and sponge painted 3 times with a variety of rust and golden colors. The use of handmade paper for the canvas of the piece gives an organic feel to the piece; the added benefit is that the work is very light for hanging.This set of work weighs about 10 lbs in total. The pieces are wired and hung without a frame.
