Culture Seen - The Markers of Human Experience

Culture Seen - The Markers of Human Experience | Encaustic Art | Scoop.it

Deborah Kapoor uses mixed media to explore the visuals of space and the human experience. Her installations are often a mix of material and encaustics. She has explored the fleeting skin of a clementine, as well as the larger implications of using cows tongues. Her work is cutting edge and exploratory. While allowing herself plenty of room to allow the work to move where it will, Kapoor also has a strong sense of what art appeals to her sense of questioning. The 3D nature of her pieces create a stronger presence to encaustics. Exploration of the personal spaces we live in are the driving force in this unique form of artwork.
