If Not Here, Then Where?

Helen Tran

This collection of four encaustic paintings focuses on the idea of mourning, funerary, and ancestry. Throughout the work, it depicts four encaustics collage painting that incorporates both printmaking and photography components. Its visual narrative acts as a ritual performance, in sealing and preserving my traditions, and a worship emblem that sums up my work to pay homage to my culture and ancestral practice.
The painting is ready to hang and includes a wired backing.
