"I have not studied General George Custer, but did talk to a few people who have. So when I came across an old portrait of him pouting intense arrogance, I wanted to change the meaning of the image. Replacing him with a beautiful contemplative woman grounded the image for me. In Custer's day, it would have been a great insult to his arrogant self to be called a woman. But I enjoy the idea of a woman being strong enough to have held the role of general in a time when their roles were highly restricted."

These images, sometimes funny, sometimes serious, have their own individual story. Michael uses the computer to knit together unique imagery not commonly seen together in this context. Whether he uses old images in new ways or mixes new images with old images, each collage comes together as one complete graphic concept. Possibly some will bring laughter, some will bring beauty and some will bring contemplation. Hopefully, you will want to bring some prints into your home.
Using the archival Giclee printing process, Michael has selected a thick and gorgeous archival (400 gsm) Strathmore water color paper to carry the medium. The textured paper is Ph-neutral, optical brighter additive-free and has a special top coating allowing unprecedented precision, contrast and color saturation for a matte medium.
