2 new artists on the scannography site

Again months have past. So if you go to this blog you always see the same news, sorry. Now I have lots of things to say about scannography but don't give myself enough time to do so. But first I want to present you two new artists I added on our main site.

Kate Cosgrove has been added in july. Her scanns are dark but very poetic in the same time. She is a student in graphic design and her art reflects a sensible view of things and nature.

Cosgrove-TempusFugit

Cosgrove-Devored

Marina Shumakova, has been added in september. She is a russian photographer and teaches theory and history of Art at the Chelyabinsk State University. Her images play with abstraction, textures, colors and movements due to the scanner. The result is original and strong and motivating.

Sonja is playing with dolls

Sonja Beskin-Mesher is our new member on the scannography site. Sonja is a complete artist : painting, drawing, writing. She proposes a serie of scanns with dolls for theme. She says : “Dolls have been used in role play in childhood and in the adult world for centuries. Research has proved that inanimate objects still provoke feeling and reaction.” 2013-08-01-14-29-24.jpg

Her images are strong and yet pleasant to look at. I hope you'll enjoy as much as I did. bound.jpg

Olga Guerra plays with strange moods

Our new fellow artist on our main site presents very strange composition. She seems to like subtle moods that gives a kind of thrill to the viewer. Playing with toys and plastic objects, she composes pictures that seem to be innocent, but what is behind all this ? Take a look and make your own opinion on Olga's new page.

A new artist on scannography.org: Emily Bree Richards

Emily Bree Richards is a young british artist who plays with faces, flower and emotions…
Emily, in a style that comes close to Liz Atkins (another british scannographer), is creating superb portraits with strong color moods and she also uses the movements in her creations.
A kind of sweet and sometimes dark nostalgia emanates from her images, and she is touching directly our feelings.
Strange and beautiful in the same time, her works have to be seen…

Ronis Furquim is a scannographer playing with object and light.

In a similar way to his fellow countrywoman, Hercilia Lopes, Ronis creates superb images on basse of strange objects and things he founds around him. 09_scarab.jpg


He is very active and seems to search new ways to express himself. The world around him is like an open book in which he picks and rearrange. Take a look at his page and discover his fine arts.

Still life by Christine Page

Christine Page is offering us beautiful colors and harmonies in her still life captures. Beauty seems to be the main purpose here, added to a great sense of color harmonies and textures. It's classical and original in the same time.
Her flowers are completed with symbolic elements that give a special charm and romantic mood to her creations. Take a look, it's really superb.

Random as part of Art : Danilo D'Alessio

Our new artist, Danilo D'Alessio, didn't propose much pictures but his method is a wonderfull one to follow.

This method, as he says, a tribute to Tristan Tzara (the Dada movement), is interesting because you know surprises will emerge. Take a look on his page to see it explained there. Some of the images (we would like to see a few more in fact) are just strange and superb.

Red Noise

Have fun and don't forget to spread the word.

Irina Yanikova

Beautiful new pictures on the site.

Irina Yanikova proposes beautiful scannography compositions. There is something fresh and original in her works. She touches a few domains and themes, mixing objects, flowers, and all sorts of elements to create her own vision of things. There is a very poetic mood in her creations and I hope you will like them as I did.

Giang Nguyen Hoang - An artist from VietNam

It's been a while since I last wrote here !

time.jpg

A shame because I presented Giang Nguyen Hoang on the main scannography site last month. And he is an exceptionnel scannographer. Dark, strange, intriguing, theses images are really appealing. I invite you to visit his page where he mixes radiographies with scannographies. And I implore you (!!) to scroll down his page till the bottom, you have a little surprise at the end that will show another side of the possibilities of this medium and of Giang's skills.

Flowers and objects : almost classic scannography with a particular point of view

Jan O'Highway seems to be almost a classic scannographer…

…but the way she lays her compositions on the flatbed scanner is rather original. In a way, she is telling us stories. She uses frames to show images within the main frame.
Like in comics she plays with the juxtaposition between things to create emotions. Blur, harsh colors, nice compositions do the rest. Take a look on her page…

Classic but with a nostalgic mood: Clare West

It's been a while since my last post. I'm sorry about this.

Our new artist on the site is an english photographer called Clare West. Her images can seem very classic but in the same time there is a very special flavour in them. A kind of nostalgia, something we find in the early photographies of the 19th century. Textures, colors, mood, everything seems to be diluted by the time machine !
I'm glad to count her amongst us !

Enjoy and leave some comments please…

papers… by Izalia Roncallo

The last artist of the year is young artist scanning paper pieces to create some kind of abstract patterns.

You have to discover her works on our page devoted to her. It's real all about composing, playing with colors, transparency and light. It's perfectly mastered and a pleasure for the eyes. Her creations are as close to abstract paintings (like Klee or Mondrian) as to scannography. But that's what makes our art so interesting : it has no limits except imagination…

The animated Lil Ashton

Our new artist from London is a young lady who will surprise you…
Animating her scanns and playing with her painted portraits, that's what Lil Ashton is dealing with.

And the results are surprising. Not only are this portraits intriguing but they also move you as they move themselves. These are like cries from outside world or inner feelings. In the same time there is a lot of humor and fun in those images.

The best way to understand what I mean is to check on her page

A french artist presents moody scanns

15_jl_aubert_100401.jpg

Our september artist is a french painter, photographer, musician AND scannographer : Jean-Louis Aubert.

His work is full of spirit, mood and strange ambiances. This artist is a complete talented one, managing various medias, he mixes his talents as well as his images.

06_jl_aubert_110120.jpg

The scanns he presentes us areof two kinds: raw scanns where he shows some natural and weird beauties, and, on the other hand, worked out montages he does from the initial raw scanns. It's strange how some of them don't look as scanns anymore. Jean-Louis has pushed the possibilities a bit further and this is one more good thing… You can also see more of his works on his own site.

Two new artists on our site

I had not much time in the last weeks but here we go again… I have to present you 2 new artists : one for july and one for august. A great summer in a way.

Werner Abel, for july, is a german artist who is fascinated by the possibilities of the flatbed scanner. He is presently publishing the first german book about scannography at Nardelli publishing.

Luis Castelo, for august, is a spanish artist who teaches photography at the Fine Arts University in Madrid. His images are like nothing comparable, between scientific views and graphic design.

Please leave comments about these two interesting guys…

Robert Fleming: scannography like fairy tales

Our new artist is someone who must like fairy tales…


…and nature of course like most of us do, I'm pretty sure. Robert Fleming works out backgrounds for his scanns and gives them a very special mood. One can just imagine trolls or elfes appearing in some part of the images. Superb color arrangements, great depth of fields and wonderfull compositions make of his images, something classical in a way, yet very unique.
And looking at his images, I can also imagine (easily) that he must like fishing, but that may be another story…

And you may discover it on his own site

Reflection from Lucy Peltier
