Marge Luttrell's encaustic paintings explore the creation stories and constellation myths that are passed down to us. Whether ancient or modern, the same stories are universal then and now, as they have the ability to mirror our own mythologies in the present tense. Similarly working with the medium of encaustic, wax becomes a figurative container for these memories and stories. By encasing these objects within this material, memories have the ability to persist and remain, revealing layers of time as their own brand of relic.
