Butterfly Tower in bright red, brick red, navy and green

The multimedia works of Patrick Walsh, aka JPW3, emerge from a process of scavenging: he reclaims and reinvents materials, often translating them into unexpected formats. These candles,made in collaboration with Sara Gernsbacher, are from repurposed wax, which becomes a canvas-like surface for abstract oil pastel transfers. Wax has long been a cornerstone of the artist's practice, specifically for its indexical potential and its implicit connotations of time. The candles bear imagery similar to his paintings, displaced into an ephemeral context: works of art with wicks, which invite their own destruction.
