This Rice Park original was started in 2017 and finished in 2018 and is the most abstract original created at this point. The buildings in the background are made with layers of paper cut with a paper cutter. In the top part of the buildings there are a few hidden Minnesota references, including an old fashioned aerial shot of St. Paul and a Ladyslipper- the Minnesota State Flower.

The skaters are made in layers to reflect the movement in their skating. The paper skaters are lifted off the original to increase their three-dimensionality. The ice is also layered in a way to reflect the light reflecting off the surface.

Other details in this work include a small tribute to Prince, the Artist’s Honda Fit in the parking garage. lights created with tiny gems and a back netting made with individual pieces of floss.

Completed originals are scanned by Terry at Artist's Resource Group in NE Minneapolis, where his ever-improving technology has paved the way for textured reproductions. Currently EmLavArt's work is available as an original, flat canvas reproductions on gallery wrapped hand-cut bars, or limited-edition archival reproductions.
