Collage, acrylic, paper, plaster, metal and oil on wood panel Oil Painting and Collage. Signed and dated by artist.
I used a 24x24 inch wood panel. On this panel I glued down the pages of old wild west history book pages. That were layered and gesso in. I have maps and posters of the old WEST. I layered it with with warm colors and strived hard to make it look like.
My heart is in the old west. I love every thing about it. Infant when doing this large collage I played out west music. I layered washes and splashes of paint and then sanded it down. I chose the right image of the large buffalo.I used Charcoal to draw. In some of the features of the Buffalo. I then mounted the panel on to 1. 5 inch boards and nailed the world panel to the boards.
I wanted to give it. A hand made one of a kind look.
I liked the way the nails do this and make it look antique like. I sprayed it with varnish to set it in. Has been hung in the front entrance of my house.
It sets a tone and works well with my leather sofa. I have many personal stories about buffalo. I really like the symbol of them. Last year I got great pictures of buffalo from Antelope Island. The symbol of the buffalo.
I picked this image which has the powerful buffalo looking back at the viewer and, inviting the viewer to participate in the. March into the future, while remembering the past. I used the circles to bring focus to the main character and implement geometry and the idea of a. Perfect plan that is played out.

Laurelle Macy grew up on a farm in northern Canada. Endless in its dimensions, untamed in its spirit, curious in its isolation, to Laurelle it is this and more. It is the stuff of passion, of creation, of timeless inspiration.
Macys relationship with the land and its people is a seasoned one. Raised in a series of bush camps, Indian reservations and boom towns in Canadas North West Territories, Macy understood early on, that her paintings could act as windows to a world little seen by others, but well known and loved by her. Laurelle first obtained her Associates in Adverting Design. She worked as a graphic designer before moving on to get her Bachelors in art at Brigham Young University. After returning to the north Laurelle enjoyed success in a number of galleries, festival and commissions.
Her and her family moved to Utah where she completed her masters degree at the University of Idaho and has been actively involved in advanced design education at the college level. Laurelles major talent lies in her portrayal of what she calls living material. The centerpieces of her artwork are native people, landscapes, and wildlife, all arrestingly alive in her paintings.
Macys refinement of detail is engaging and her love of color apparent, at times immediate and aggressive, at others subtle and leading. Macy experience with color and composition seems to reflect the very personality of her subjects. To see her paintings and feel somehow touched by an open genuine spirit. This singular connection between the viewer and the subject is Macys desire. To paint the west, its people, animals and its landscape with compassion and insight, she hopes is her success.
Laurelle Macys work has been shown in galleries across Northern Canada and in select studios in Utah. In addition to her work, Macy is faculty a national art institute, has illustrated childrens books, portrait painter and is a 3 time grant recipient celebrating northern native people. Her diverse career, where she worked along side Dene Nation elders and Inuit carvers, to the cutting edge world of graphic design gives her tremendous understanding and perspective.An artist of unquestionable talent with yet untapped potential.
