Edition Mixed Medium Gold Leaf Embellished Giclées
on Canvas by Analise Rigan
with Three-Dimensional Gold Leaf Frames Created and Embellished
artists inspiration has evolved from the earlier
works of the Celts, and from the icons of Europe, to
the more recent style presented by the pre-Raphaelites.
The common appeal seems to be the vivid use of color
along with texture and patterns all presented
in support of the message intended.
this mixed medium series, the artist begins with an
image usually painted in oil or alkyds. From these images,
a giclée print is made on canvas. The prints
are then stretched and a three-dimensional frame is
created; the frame may be only an illusion created of
sculpting compound on the canvas and finished with gold
or composition gold leaf before painting. Embellishment
to the image on the canvas is also made. The final piece
is a mixed medium window to a symbolic world; each piece
can be similar, yet different.
