Painting inspired by a visit to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadephia, PA
Encaustic, oil, plaster, metal lathe, resin, key, and found dirt, paint, and plaster chips on wood panel


This painting was created by continuously layering resin, plaster, and paint on a wood panel, then digging and scratching on the surface and re-layering for the duration of about two years. The process of creating this piece was for me, a reflection on life for the people serving out sentencing within the walls of the penitentiary.
