“New Americana” is an evocative giclée on canvas by Michael Summers, where the timeless grandeur of an elephant meets the rebellious spirit of American tattoo culture. In this captivating piece, the elephant stands as a magnificent canvas, its vast, wrinkled skin illustrated with iconic tattoo motifs that tell a story of courage, freedom, and adventure.
Each tattoo, from the classic heart and anchor to the wild cherries and shooting stars, is rendered with exquisite detail, symbolizing the diverse elements of American folklore and the ideals that have shaped a nation. Bold, vibrant colors bring these designs to life against the elephant’s natural grey tones, creating a contrast that is both striking and thought-provoking.
The elephant itself, an emblem of strength and memory, seems to carry these cultural emblems with a sense of pride and dignity. Its tusks rise majestically, and its eyes reflect a deep soulfulness, suggesting a being that understands the weight and significance of its adorned history.
“New Americana” is more than just a fusion of wildlife art and traditional Americana; it is a celebration of the merging of old and new, the preservation of heritage through modern expression. It speaks to those who appreciate the beauty of tradition as well as the importance of personal storytelling through art.
This piece is an ideal acquisition for collectors who are drawn to works that bridge the gap between different art forms and cultural expressions. Displayed in a contemporary home, a creative studio, or an eclectic gallery, “New Americana” will not only become a statement artwork but also a constant source of inspiration and conversation.
