Encaustic Collage by Marty Ittner

“The encaustic medium encourages flexibility, texture and the ability to embed a variety of materials. I like to combine the control of screenprinting papers with the randomness of cutting those papers into free form shapes and juxtaposing vintage ephemera. I don’t start with a preconceived idea of how a collage will turn out. The shapes come out of my hand, and the colors are what I like. As a graphic designer used to controlling outcomes, I am both frightened and thrilled with the artistic practice of letting go.”
