Inspirational Artist Feature – Nanami Cowdroy

Nanami Cowdroy has an interestingly complex, pen and ink style to her art. She uses seemingly fragile objects to create a strong presence and composition in each piece. Utilizing the look of fluid line-work, she gives the feeling of each object flowing into the next. The overall style of her work is heavily japanese influenced, and gives the appearance of different phases of water. In “Ink Pond” the water style is splashing out of a paint can device used at the bottom of the work. In “Geisha Yume” the water style is cascading down the woman’s body like a waterfall. In “Cable Cranes” the water style is slowing moving the origami like a calm river.

Inspirational Artist Feature – Cliff Briggie

Cliff Briggie’s technique focuses on photographing the movement in liquids. The consistency of the subject-matter also gives the appearance of dissipating smoke or a gentle satin fabric. Concentrating the colors in different areas creates a subtle transparency that plays with the light source. The mixing colors and swirling compositions make these pieces absolutely mesmerizing.
