Incremental Creativity is a mixed media series by Marta Musa. This mixed media pieces incorporate multiple mediums including Encaustic (Damar Resin, Pigment & Beeswax) and Gold foil.
Inspiration for this series comes from growth rings in trees. Growth rings, in a cross section of the stem of a woody plant, are the increment of wood added during a single growth period. Similar to a tree, I believe that an artist goes through creative seasons, learning, adapting and changing with each period of growth.
Each piece begins with collecting a round of wood, drying it, sanding it, burning it, printing it and converting it into gold foil to incorporate into an encaustic painting.
