A series of twenty-five encaustic monotype paintings on muslin with a sculptural dimension.
One Encaustic Drawing with companion sculpture (Renaissance Unframed #26)

Renaissance Unframed #1-25 is a series of twenty-five encaustic paintings on muslin, pinned loosely on the wall, and presenting a sculptural dimension in their draping and folding.

Freely applying pigmented encaustic wax onto a silkscreen, Richard Tuttle printed one by one the lengths of weaver’s muslin, which absorbed the hot wax into its fibers. Using this method, he created unique works using multiple techniques at Graphicstudio.

The sculpture Renaissance Unframed #26 completes the artist’s concept of this series, a complex tapestry of ideas involving the cultural development of western civilization from the Greeks. The small two-part bronze sculpture, cast from a Styrofoam carving, possesses the mysterious presence of an ancient artifact.
