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…

Liz Atkin : new artist on "scannography.org"

A new artist is welcomed amongst our little community. Here is an extract from her presentation.
"Liz Atkin is a visual artist based in London. She completed a Masters with Distinction from Laban, Europe's largest Conservatoire for Contemporary Dance, London in 2007. Liz is interested in skin as a constantly transforming surface, ripe with memory, a flesh canvas. Skin is her primary source for corporeal art. In her portraits, Liz works with her face and the surface of her skin, exploring texture and transformation through body focussed repetitive behaviour. Drawing with light, current pieces are produced through domestic flatbed scanners."

Her images are strong, deranging, sometimes violent but always with great artistic content, sense of composition and harmony.
