When my dearest friend Vassilisa Johri went home to India and visited the Taj Mahal, she noticed numbers on some of the marble tiles. So she shot a stunning series of tile portraits. The moment I saw them, I felt compelled to emulate the look of her photos using encaustics.
From 3D marble tiles to 2D photographs to 3D wax pieces…this interpretation & translation project bridges mediums, continents, friends, and our notions of home.
