Lynn Bregman Blass and Leah Sobsey: Time, Memory and Lineage
Time, Memory and Lineage is about history passing into distance made visible again through photography and encaustic. This exhibition showcases Lynn Bregman Blass and Leah Sobsey’s first project together addressing Time, through transferred images on adding machine tape with encaustic; Memory, images floated in wax on light boxes; and Lineage, deconstructed grids of ancestry. In 2007 Lynn and Leah began a conversation about the qualities of photography and encaustic, a process involving beeswax & damar resin, used in Fayum mummy portraits in Egypt in 100-300 AD. Time, Memory and Lineage is based upon Lynn and Leah’s own family histories of Eastern European immigrants at the turn of the 20th century.
