This is the baby babel hover block edition of 33.
The image is an archival pigment print on Hahnemüle rice paper that has been mounted a 3/4" wood block. The image is sized and coated in my homemade beeswax/dammar/carnauba wax encaustic.
On the border is a handmade custom waxed pine slat frame.
The back is wired and rigged with a 1/2" wood dowel that lifts the piece 1/2" off the wall when hung giving the illusion of floating.
Each of the 33 are approx. 3.25" x 4.5" and hovers .5"
Every piece is handmade giving each finished work their own character and unique physical traits.

Looking at pictures in a book of Bruegel's Tower Of Babel paintings is one of my very earliest memories. They made an enormous impact on me as a young child. Over my lifetime they remained as an inspiration for hundreds of works I have made. In 2017, for the first time, I confronted the piece head on and created this homage to Pieter Bruegel the Elder and his "small" tower.
The original work I created is an acrylic painting with carbon transfers and wax.
