One of a kind original art by Michael Burton. 6 x 6" mixed media on gessoboard. Ready to hang - the piece itself 'floats' 3/4 of an inch out from the wall.
What is this? I combine photos, encaustics, oil paint, graphite, plaster, and whatever else I can get my hands on. I make or find things, photograph them, then paint those photographs. I pour things on the painted photo. I scrape things off. I heat them up. I coat them with goop. Then sometimes I photograph those paintings, and maybe even paint those photographs of those paintings. It’s like Alchemy. Or mud pies. Or poking a fire with a stick.
