Tobia Makover: Encaustic Photographs

July 8th, 2011 by Amy Zurcher
In all bodies of work and in life, Tobia contemplates the physicality of our existence. She questions the importance of our being and the impact of our time here while she examines the tension between holding on and the desire to let go.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting with SCAD alumna Tobia Makover in her new studio.  The new space she has created is divine!  An offer to sit a spell and chat about her work was most eagerly accepted.  This dedicated work space is so Zen-superabundant natural sunlight and white walls beautifully show off her work and all her materials and pieces are so harmoniously ordered.  

shopSCAD has sold Tobia’s encaustic photographs very well.  We sold 7 to one collector just the other day! The one shown above is my favorite.  I just love the composition and find it so engaging.  The baby in this image is her first son.  He was born with webbed fingers and had to have them surgically separated.  Please continue on to see more of her hauntingly beautiful work along with some studio shots I snapped during my visit!
