Moriarty says her work "aims to create a textbook of geologic processes, as if each piece were a page from a reference book." She is fascinated by the ability to manipulate wax, embedding sculptural elements then excavating to reveal what was buried. "Like rockfaces or archaeological sites, their layers reveal the history of their making and can be read like the lines of a story."
Moriarty (pictured left with heat gun) is teaching a four-day workshop at the Institute, sponsored by R & F Handmade Paints, a New York based company that manufactures encaustic paint and sells supplies for wax artists.
