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.

Liz Atkin, one of our great scannographers, is participating on a Dance show… She will be exhibiting art work for Independant Dance at Siobhan Davies Studios in London on 18 and 19 April with other dance artists
From what I saw from Liz's work, this must be an interesting venue. I recommend it for those of you who are close from London…
