Juxtaposed construction- Perfect man-made cubes, the almighty grid in competition with surfaces scarred, stained, eroded. The battle continues, collapse is inevitable.

Encaustic paintings done on 7.5" cubes made from white birch. These cubes are mean to be painting and sculpture. There is no "right" way for them to stand. Each of the six sides is carefully done as a finished painting. Colors, lines and textures often wrap to the adjacent side giving continuity to the piece as a three dimensional sculptural piece. Each cube is finished as a completed piece but multiples grouped together can offer interesting arrangements.
