Mixed Media & Other Assemblages

Photography is the driving force behind most of my creations. Other photo-artist like Dave McKean and Doug and Mike Starn have inspired me to conceptually challenge what a makes a photograph. Early on I also began to explore mixed media as framing device for my work. In the following two collections are finished pieces that are available for sale. I have art prints available of my recent photos listed in my Foto Print Gallery.

Foto Dono Art

The following is an example of my photographic expanse into assemblage art. My assemblage foundation nearly always begins with a photograph. From there 3-dimensional elements are added. Those elements are from my collection of found objects to create a concept or theme.

The image here is of one my first creations. It was a commission for a private collection. However, as you'll see of my more recent work, they have begun to escape the confines of traditional framing devices.

The current collection is available for sale and includes shipping to most places within the US.

Foto Dono Framed Fotos

Within this collection are my very popular framed art prints of my photos. Most of the art prints are printed on Hahnemühle FineArt papers, either Photo Rag Bayta or Hahnemühle's Metallic Canvas. The process involves permanently attaching the print to reclaimed or recycled wood.

 

Sometimes this involves nailing or screwing the print down! The finished piece is mixed media where more than one medium or material has been employed. The frames are part of the print and the print is a part of the frame. The end result is to create a unique one of kind object that I've not seen anywhere else.
