I was asked to create an “erotic” art piece and this is what I created using encaustic on wood. The grooves to the left are for you to run your fingers through… Both hands no thumbs. The wax begs to be touched so I wrote the words giving the viewer permission to put their fingers on the surface of the piece. I stroked the wax all the way up to Schwabing. It feels soft like warm marble. I would love for you to get to experience the same thing. The surface can be wiped with a cloth cause it is encaustic= wax/resin. The art piece is on display at so.cal in Schwabing, Germany.
Artist: Emmy Horstkamp Title: “Touch Me.” Material: Encaustic on wood. 40 x 40 cm Date: August 2015. Price 450 euro.

Manuela illera is organizing the fest which will also showcase fine art films. Here are two interior shots of the space so you can see what it looks like before art and movies.
Dan one of the owners said the movies will be shown in the back room so you can sit up front, outside or in the darkened movie room.
So.cal serves fusion food and still has that new smell (they opened in December 2014.) I will be there early on Saturday. Come have a drink with me and check out some art.
