This chessboard installation is made up of individual pieces, each telling a story of someone's life.
The individual works that make up the series 'Dispossession Games' form a big picture, a 'cacophony of voices trying to be heard'. But as each of us does in our lives, they also stand alone, with their own unique story to tell.
They have been made using many different media and techniques, yet what unites them is the encaustic... hot wax melted into them. They have all been through the fire, so to speak. - Sue Hoppe
