"Elk and Tree" showcases the historical elk statue at the Elks Lodge 46 on the Northwest side of Milwaukee. This statue used to be at the Elk's Club on Milwaukee's lakefront. The image consists of reverse images of a tree along with the elk statue.
Description of Process:
This collage consists of different photographs I’ve taken, digitally collaged, and finally printed in reverse onto laser jet printing paper. I then brush transfer medium onto the image and glue face down onto pine wood. Once the transfer is dry, I get the surface wet and begin rubbing the paper away. After several sessions, the ink from the printout is left behind on the wood. Each piece is hand sanded, small amount of stain applied to border and side. Finally sealed with UV protection and a matte finish. These collages sometimes show a quirkiness and make for a unique piece of art to enhance your wall!
