Blue Stag

I created the Stag as part of my Trophy Series to bring attention to the fact that we revere animals more when they are dead than when they are living. In a time when we are seeing the beginning of a large mammal extinction on our planet, it would be my hope that we find ways to co-exist with wild animals. Here the Stag is wearing a crown like a halo and  surrounded by wreath, much like a horse would be adorned after a winning race, to represent their contribution to the ecosystem and life on this planet.


Artwork is 9"x12" mixed media collage and relief engraving on cotton rag paper.


Product Info

This piece is a "mixed media relief engraving.” The main image is in the block print or relief family of printmaking, which refers to two surfaces, one lower than the other, so that the highest surface prints. I hand carve each image with small but tough tools called burins, or gravers. The remaining surface is rolled with ink and pressed through the printing press. 

I combine mixed media (collage, colored pencil, watercolor, goldleaf, etc) into each piece. This is a mixed media edition of 3, the print you recieve may vary slightly from the one pictured.
