Palestine Envelopes

Some weeks ago I started a series of small vellum envelope pieces that dealt with the Palestinian issue.  I have reworked some of these more fully, adding encaustic and china marker to enhance the feeling of  obfuscation and missing information.  Here are a few of these pieces reworked. With the current conflagration in the West Bank, these pieces seem particularly relevant in terms of understanding cultural differences and establishing identity in a shared place.

Envelopes: 3" x 3" vellum envelopes, encaustic, graphite, charcoal, printouts from the internet
