New Experiments

I put a couple of recent photographic experiments. The top image is of a garden sculpture and the bottom from the Chicago subway system. Both images have undergone heavy modification. Both printed out on digital photo paper by an Epson ink jet printer, boiled, rolled, and had the fiber backing removed. Once dried, I covered them in encaustic. The top image also is backed with gold leafing. They both were then mounted into a shadow matting and frame. Both are experiments rather than ending points. I am not sure where it will lead, but the process is producing some interesting results along the way. The top one is currently being shown in the UND Student Art show.
