Artist D. Keith Furon has evolved photographic art in his Crafted Works series. These unique art pieces are hand manipulated into three-dimensional, deconstructed pieces of sculpted art in multiple sessions until the shape, distressing, texturing and manipulation are locked into the print so that it retains its shape in an archival form. The piece is then mounted, floating style, in a hand-made shadow box frame behind optically clear glass. The original photographic image used in this piece will never be used or printed again. "Machine Parts" features a black & white image of a nude woman sitting on milling machines in an abandoned steel factory in Cleveland Ohio. The original photograph was circa 2006 and the final Crafted Works piece was created in 2011.
