Ronis Furquim; an active brazilian scannographer

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.

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…

A site from Ankara

A strange site I received infos about.

"This is Serkan Isin, i am the editor of www.poetikhars.com and subsites that are dedicated to visual poetry scene since 2005. We are following your site with interest and like you to know about ourexperiments about scanner and visual poetry, you can visit www.poetikhars.com/camera."

Of course I can't read the pages from this site because I don't read turkish. Sorry about it but well… I know some amongst you can. But the page with the images shows some nice black and white researches. Maybe that can give ideas to some of you. Lots of things and I don't know what part the scanner exactly takes in them. But I wanted to share.

Make comments if you have infos.

Now don't ask me how she proceeds. I can't explain. But Bex just sent me a step-by-step, to explain her method. So if you come back to the site in the next two weeks you certainly will get an answer.
In the mean time, enjoy the wonderfull images she shares on her page. The paintings seem alive and liquid, it's a very organic sensation, and her colors are just bursting to our eyes. You can also take a look on her personal website.

Stephanie Sierou-Aarten from Netherlands

The community continues to grow after a calm summer where I didn't do anything on the site !!

Stephanie Sierou-Aarten is a student in Art from Holland. She discovered the magic of scannography seven years ago, and this technic became a passion for her. This discovering reminds something to me, as it must for a lot amongst us.

Take a look at her beautiful creations. She seems fascinated by colors, lights and movements. Her works are close to Jens Standke's images. She plays with glass objects that she moves on the scanner while scanning. The result is amazing as it seems to represent some outerspace creatures or images from another dimansion. Which is, in a certain way, the case, as she distorts time and space with her method !

Portraits and abstractions by Elisabeth Gibouin

A young french girl, student in Visual Arts and History of Art in Angers is using a scanner to create images and projects of her own. Elisabeth produces two types of scannographies. You can now see her images on our main site, but also on this page.

The first are portraits in black and white where she tries to put emotions and to capture a kind of innerworld of the subject… The lights, contrasts and composition are superb in these images and she succeeds by transmitting emotions and characteres of the persons she scanns…

The second type of scannographies are abstracts. Elisabeth paints abstract color compositions, then scanns them while moving them on the scanner screen-plate. She obtains images with lots of movements and waves. She uses them in projections while a dancer follows his inspiration guided by these scannnographic movements… A very interesting experiment.

I hope you will like this new artist. Don't hesitate to give her some feedback by commenting these images.

Scanner lens driven by hand

Sergey Sorokin is a diverse artist touching all kind of medias.

His scannographys are abstract and geometrical. Far from the standards we slowly create by being a community of artists. But that's also what makes him interesting. He uses the scanner in a non-conventional way. Colorfull, presenting very repetitive motives, using often printed papers as ground material for his images, he doesn't fit completely in what we now call scannography.
Sergey takes the scanner lens out of the scanner and rambles it on the objects or things he want to interpretate. This approach is very new, I think, and certainly allows a lot of new images to appear. My regret is he stayed a bit too classic in what he showed. I suppose he will try out lots of things in the next future (why not body parts, screens, animals…). For those who are ready to try this technic I'm sure this will open new areas of creation. So, thank you Sergey, for presenting us these images and a good continuation to you.
