Art & Design Study Collection: Wild Ink Print Exchange 2012
UND Art Collections Repository
David Lusk, a native of Montana, is inspired by the combination of science and mythology, and his work often depicts animals and nature themed subjects. The halo above the bison’s head implies a sacredness and respect toward the animal, which is admired for its size, strength, and historical significance native to the plains of North America. With a near threatened existence, efforts are being made to conserve the habitat and existence of the roaming beast.
Holy Roamer is a print created as part of the 2012 Wild Ink Print Exchange. Faculty and students from the University of Alaska Anchorage, University of Montana, University of Wyoming, and University of North Dakota took part in the exchange. Lusk created this work as a student of printmaking at the University of Montana.
