Reel Life

"Reel Life" is a skyline view of the city from Navy Pier with a dreamy surreal quality designed to evoke thoughts of a life that is larger then the individual, with consideration to the role one was created to play.

I snapped the photo at Navy Pier and manipulated the image to create a digital collage in Photoshop. A print of the digital collage was adhered to a 6" x 18" canvas along with packaging from a vintage movie reel.

I extended the look and feel of the digital collage to the other end of the canvas with acrylic paint and protected the entire work with gel medium.
