Mixed Media Giclée Prints
A gold mask face topped by a jelly fish and underwater creature. Breast plate is a fish, hands and fingers are underwater critters. The sea holds the most fabulous colors and shapes ever. Sash of antique brass oyster shell. The ground is a luxurious gold fabric against a background of smokey sky. Red, gold and teal.
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.
