Lightness of Being

Mixed Media Giclée Prints

3 sizes

A head dress made of a meat platter, a green gem and spinach for hair, this gal wears tortillas around her shoulders just beneath a collar of beads.  I loved these tortillas. You can see into her broken egg head which reveals a candle stick within. Yes, it makes sense to someone. Her gown is of purple, gold and silver fabric and beads. Olive, orange, peaches and silver.

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.
