Description Lyndon Alec is a member of the Alabama Coushatta tribe and has traveled the world performing his amazing Hoop Dance. With more than a dozen hoops rotating symmetrically on his body and head he tells the story of the birth of Mother Earth. I captured his image while he was performing at the Moundville Native American Festival in Moundville, Alabama.
Joni Gruber, Deep South Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement In addition to my photographs and altered digital photos, prints of my encaustic paintings are available here. Encaustic is an ancient medium of beeswax, damar resin and pigments that is applied in its molten state. I am especially fond of using iridescent pigments and I use gessoed wood panels for my substrates.
