“My current ‘clickless’ photography, facial portraits and botanical images, are created with a hand-held wand scanner, an instrument designed to be used on books and flat materials. The ambient light and the light of the scanner create valleys of shadows and unusual luminosity on both portrait and plant scans. I cover these images with fused encaustic medium because to add to their other-worldly, unattainable quality.”
Barbara’s piece “Orange orchids” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of her work at www.barbvogel.net.
