Viscus Rhythmus

Katie Harris's avatar Katie Harris

Viscus Rhythmus is a mixed media encaustic piece. The encaustic medium allows you to work various materials that you can layer and seal between wax. This piece contains chalk pastel, string, and tissue paper. When I first started this piece I used chalk pastel and then the strings. I felt that the string was very reminiscent of veins or a willow tree. My future husband, his passion for me to create, his passion for music and how his passion for everything close to him never falters “off beat”, inspired me the most for this piece.
