Warhol: Deconstructed


Here is the second encaustic painting in my Deconstructed series. You can tell by the title of the post who the image is: Andy Warhol, one of my favorite artists! Here is the image I transferred onto fabric and began with:


Then I started the screen printing process. I did so many rounds of screen prints and ended up with a ton of different images on fabric to work with. I had originally planned on making an art quilt with these squares. I have so many to choose from that I may still do that with some that are left over. Here are the fabric squares I've chosen to make encaustic paintings with. I've laid the squares out side by side to show the progression of the screen print as the image deconstructed through the process. So cool!  Yes, I changed fabric through the process. Plus, these are my favorite images through a couple of different runs. ;-)


These are 8" x 8" squares and fit perfectly onto the deep wood panels I have. So far I've only done the two with encaustic but I love the finished look of them. Here is a side view of one of the paintings hanging on the wall:


Once I get each square embedded in encaustic, I'll arrange each wood panel on the wall. They will be arranged similar to the way they are laid out in the above photo but I will probably will have more in each row. I will post a photo when the series is completed and on the wall.

This is my Paint Party Friday entry. Check out what everybody else is up to today. Last I checked there are nearly 70 entries! Should be lots of eye candy waiting.

Pam...Bill sums it up beautifully - "You do such fascinating work..."

I confess, I had to look up "encaustic" and when I read what it was I must say WOW - it would be so cool to see this in "person" - your pictures are great...but this sort of thing is best appreciated with the naked eye.

I love your enthusiasm and passion - it pops off the page; rather infectious...makes me want to create something...

Happy Easter! (if you don't celebrate then Happy Weekend!) :)

Hugs, Jenny

Oh Pam - this is fantastic! Andy Warhol is the perfect subject for the process you used... He would be proud! I love how you took printing to the next level with the encaustics - and the results are amazing! Wow!
