JR Busch Images

Milwaukee, WI


About the Artist:

I am a Milwaukee-based artist with an appreciation for photography and history.  My art is a timeless representation of the past and the present. I have been doing photography since 2009 and have accumulated a vast library of images, from cityscapes and architecture, to nature and still life.

My vision has been to take my original photographs and turn them into one-of-a-kind pieces of fine art. Each photo is printed on paper and glued, face-down, on bare wood. Once the paper is removed, the image left behind is then distressed and stained. The finished piece is sealed with a gel medium to add dimension and also as a protective layer. Each finished piece is truly unique due to the grain in the wood and the manual nature of the process, ensuring that no two versions of an image will ever be exactly the same.
