“Be Civil” was inspired by a neon light that used to sit in a window of a building on the corner of Humboldt and North Avenue in Milwaukee simply saying Be Civil. The sign is now gone, but the strength of its message remains. The peace sign behind it was taken at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California. The background consists of water droplets reflecting streetlights through a window one rainy night.
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!
Size: 5.25"x7.25" (approximately)
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. Pieces will vary slightly from the images shown.
Finished artwork is intended for indoor display and is not weather resistant.
