My Country ‘Tis of Thee

Encaustic Assemblage, 36” x 36”, 2018

Exhibited at the “Melting Pot” exhibition in Santa Fe, New Mexico in the summer of 2018. The Call to exhibit at the Encaustic Art Museum was for artist’s to interpret the theme as they saw fit..either as an immigration issue or hot wax/melting dynamic. As many of my relatives were immigrants (from Poland), i decided to use artifacts and photographs of my relatives.
