Encaustic found object sculpture on wood panel, post industrial development, gentrification, mixed media sculpture by Crystala Armagost
Encaustic on wood with nails and patina
Approximately 5x5x5

“Manic” is part painting, part sculpture. I created this piece by methodically hammering over 3 dozen nails into a wood panel and surrounding them with a cast of poured wax. The surface below has been treated with a glaze of iron and patina. This piece represents the industrial legacy of the rust belt and its slow reduction by new, slick, modern developments.
