Encaustic Minis 2016

Series 4

I am very much drawn to the stories of the past. I look at old photos and I’m mesmerized with thoughts of what stories they may be telling. In awe of the thought that there are others just like me – with the same hopes, dreams, and struggles – who lived a hundred years ago. I’m here now but I too will pass away. What legacy do I live behind? What stories will people in the future wonder about me?

These small encaustic paintings are done on 4x4 in. heavyweight illustration boards and each are mounted on a signed 6x6 acid-free matboard. The illustration boards are made of 100% cotton fiber, acid-free paper.

“The best thing about time passing is the privilege of running out of it, of watching the wave of mortality break over me and everyone I know. No more time, no more potential. The privilege of ruling things out. Finishing. Knowing I’m finished. And knowing time will go on without me. Look at me, dancing my little dance for a few moments against the background of eternity.” – Sarah Manguso
