When you see graffiti on buildings or overpass walls, you can interpret it two ways: defacement of property or artistic expression. Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch sees it as art. For her latest body of work, she was influenced by the graffitied trains that pass by her Lexington home. She started each mixed media encaustic painting with writing her poetry on a panel. Then the layering began, just like it does with graffiti in real life. The resulting paintings are a homage to the (sometimes-illegal) creativity that covers our world.
