Ilse Bolle, ‘Ten 1-21’, 2016, ViVO Contemporary

The series "Ten" contains 21 pieces, which may be hung individually or grouped. Each piece embeds 10 raised lines of waxed linen in a variety of configurations. Ten is considered a perfect score, but often unattainable, therefore, the lines are partially embedded in the encaustic medium. The brick shape of the pieces signify building blocks on the way to perfection. Each piece is $300.
