More encaustic and mixed media pieces by Michelle Marcuse...Look at how lush they are, due to her interesting technique of combining encaustic with digital technology- the old with the new.

I posted about Marcuse's darker works here.

oh!!! i accidentally delete the coment - here it is :D"

isn't she amazing ... the color combination are terrific ... like a breath of air - i am so up for anything or anyone who is experimenting with traditional and digital methods and come out with something that call one's own ... back in 1991, she did a brief interview with new york time, and mentioned about the fundamental difference between so-called art here in the west (united state, precise) and Africa ... that one was to serve as "art" and nothing else - the other (in Africa) serve both functionality and esthetically purpose, thus, according to her statement "everything is art"... did you read about it - and how do you think about it, now in the year 2009???
