Recently I posted images of new digital “texture art” that I created using photos of rocks/nature combined with the texture/colors of some printmaking details. (You can see those HERE and HERE!) In those posts I mentioned that I had sent some of the images to be printed on aluminum. They turned out beautiful & shiny! I debated how best to show them and thought of combining them with a wall sculpture of some sort. When Mark & I were making art for the recycled art show I brought them out to the shop and played around with several ideas, none of which really excited me. Then Mark suggested we use some stamped scrap metal to create “frames” for a couple of the prints.
Perfect! It’s so nice to have someone to bounce ideas off of and work together creatively! We ended up framing two of them like this, I am considering do a “float” type of display on some of the others. I will have them on display at the upcoming Autumn Art Fair at the Garfield Park Art Center on November 20th & 21st. Be sure and mark your calendar and come see all the wonderful art that weekend. It would be a wonderful place to pick up one-of-a-kind gifts for the holidays and support the local art community!
Be there or be square!
