Mixed media collage by Michigan artist Ken Graning of Holly, Mich.  5 x 7 in.  Matted to 8 x 10 in.  

Digital Print/Mixed Media Process:

The artist combines computer and fine art skills to create his unique abstract mixed media collages.  First, he designs, prints and soaks a digital design before removing the paper to create a transparent image similar to a decal.  While the decal dries he paints pieces of archival board with areas of completely abstract colors and shapes.  The final step is to apply a coating of transparent mat medium to the painted board and randomly place pieces of the transparent images onto the board, often overlapping designs.  The final piece is sealed with two more layers of transparent mat medium and sealed to the archival board.
