Awkward Elegance

Red lobster chested and clawed creature which incorporates a Chicago rail yard at night, fish eye, perfume bottle and seems hobbled by antique cloven hooves. It’s neck and arms used to be furniture ornamentation. Red, Turquoise and yellow.

The process begins with high quality magazines and  books from which the palettes, shapes, and elements are  selected for the central characters. I photograph the  backgrounds and manipulate the color in Photoshop to  work with the images. The collages are drum scanned    and photographed professionally before the merge with  the backgrounds. The prints are highest quality archival  paper or canvas and archival ink.
