Original digital art by Eco-Artist John K Melvin. Skull Ride is a conceptual work of digital art imagining a monument to the history of the western states of the USA. The image is composed of a mirror finish reflective sculpture made by the artist and then superimposed 3-dimensionally onto a site-specific photograph. The background image is a an ancient site where in the past, First Nation peoples used the surrounding cliffs as a buffalo drop. Inspired by the hunting practices and the sacrifice of life for life, the artist created this reflective sculpture inspired by buffalo, artifacts, and sustainability. It is a full color photographic work of digital art printed on paper with a wide range of colors evocative of Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Arizona, and other Western States.
The image is 54.26 x 36.48 including a 3cm border for mounting.
1st Edition is limited to 50. Each limited-edition print ships with an artist signed certificate of edition, and each print has a custom embossed artist signature on the lower right border of the print. These two forms of certification create a truly unique piece of art for any collection. The artist suggests it be displayed with a 2-inch archival white window mat framing the print just beyond the embossed signature, and all enclosed in a low profile matte black studio frame with UV glass or acrylic glazing.
