“Aggressively Fragile” Photo-mixed media by Melissa T. Hall
Two years ago Melissa T. Hall learned that she has the same cancer her mother had just died from. A conceptual photographer Melissa used her artwork to explore the emotional highs and lows when facing mortality. “Examining my thoughts as artistic concepts has made them more objective and helped to remove the fear from them.” Melissa begins with a photograph but then will add encaustic medium and assemblages to expand the image. She starts with an elaborate photo shoot that involves unique locations, models, costumes and props. Refining the photograph in Photoshop she will further manipulate the image by adding layers of encaustic wax and pigments. To document her second round of chemo Melissa assembled found objects with photographic prints to chronicle each appointment. With each artwork the viewer is given a hint of her thoughts by the narrative of the titles. Coffee & Artist Demo: July 8th , 11AM-1PM, 2017 Artist’s Closing Reception: July 21st, 5-8 PM, with LexArts Gallery Hop
