Photomontage by Kelly Wantuch

I assembled (the old fashioned way, NOT photoshop)over 25 altered photos into a collage and then I painted details in black and white on top. I will be soon adding shades of gray or color using an intaglio technique. Click on the photo to enlarge it.
Photobucket Next I transferred my collage image using photo emulsion onto a silkscreen and than squeegeed the image onto a copper plate. I applied aquatint to the plate and than etched the image for various times to create different tones. Then I pulled a test proof. Now I am going to engrave into the plate to create more definition and detail. Than I am making a 2nd aquatint plate to add another color to the final image.


  1. Beautiful image. It reminds me of the Magic Theatre in Hesse's Steppenwolf.
