Erin Keane | Encaustic + Journals

I am especially interested in the elasticity of light as it dances around shadow and reflection. It is intriguing how the camera lens “sees” differently than the eye. My method of developing photography involves transferring the ink from my prints onto cradled panels and saturating with encaustic. This creates soft imagery with a luminous glow and aromatic scent of beeswax.
