    Benefitting Save Ellis Island

    Craig Alan's mixed media works of art have some printed elements that act as a basic template, along with a tremendous amount of additional work that makes each piece a unique work of art. These pieces, depending on whether they are figurative in nature or abstract, go through the same production process. Each piece, depending on size, will have anywhere between 100-250 new elements added to the piece by hand. Some of the constructive abstract pieces will have large elements such as blocks or other structures painted directly on the canvas or board. Once all of the elements are in place, the back ground of the canvas or board will be painted, and in some cases, textured. Once the background is complete, figurative elements with the piece receive highlights of color and shadows. The process of adding shadows and elements are done so with an airbrush, so at times, it is very difficult to make the distinction between elements that have been sprayed on to the piece by the nozzle of a giclee printer or applied by hand through an airbrush. Once the piece is completed, it will go through a process of receiving three coats of resin (only mixed media pieces on board), which are all applied by hand. Boards with resin then cure for a period of 2-4 weeks before shipping.
