Shadow Art

Portraits of Myself

On cloudy days I miss sunshine…and shadows. Yesterday the sky was (almost) cloud free, the sun was shining brightly, the magnolia trees were in full bloom,

…and I had a good time playing with my shadow.

Portriats of Myself - Alison Shull Art

Inspiration from

…one of my favorite autobiographies: Portrait of Myself by Margaret Bourke-White (world famous pioneering photographer, who happened to get her start here in cloudy Ithaca) and

Untitled (Child)
Untitled (Child) by Kumi Yamashita

…the masterful “Light & Shadow” art of artist Kumi Yamashita, who describes her technique as:

I sculpt shadow with light or sometimes light with shadow, but both function in essentially the same manner. I take objects and carve and place them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow).

Alison Shull is an artist who hung her art show at Stella’s Cafe yesterday morning, and then while walking to her studio she “painted” these photographs with sunshine and shadows. View paintings she’s painted with paint at her on-line gallery
