Shary presents an intimate glimpse into her unique encaustic photo alteration techniques. Shary hand-alters photographs, then bathes them in encaustic wax, adding texture and details with coloured wax pigments and paints.
Shary's encaustic sculptures are featured in this newly released large format photographic book. Richard Frumess, founder of R & F Handmade Paints, has high praise in his testimonial:
"The work of some of the finest practitioners of contemporary encaustic demonstrates how this versatile medium has evolved as a cross-disciplinary collaborator with every sphere of visual arts…" It’s a book that belongs on every art-lover’s coffee table!"
