Welcome to our fifteenth Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Michelle Robinson and Ile Mont. Every two weeks they will review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, to creating a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we will also highlight a few images that have caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition and subject matter.
If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us! This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) regarding mobile portraiture and portraiture in general.
We hope you enjoy this weeks’ showcase…Many congratulations to all the artists featured this week, links to their images can be found below:
Illumination Of The Spirit by Jo Sullivan
“Evoking the palette and scenes of the 17th century paintings, Jo Sullivan’s Illumination Of The Spirit presents us a magnificent digital reinterpretation of the grandeur and emotional content of the Baroque. The dramatic almost painful expression and tiredness of the main character, the dark, desperate mood established by the lighting of the languishing candles and the special symbolisms carefully chosen and placed, invite us unavoidably to keep looking by appealing to our senses”. – Ile Mont

Feature: I know if I’m haunting you, You must be haunting me by Kirstie Benoit
“I love portraits with a strong emotional narrative … so strong that it gives me a physical reaction. When I saw Kristie’s piece, not only did I stop to stare, but my hair stood on end as well. The quality of the image is superb with a great balance of photographic elements as well as editing skills. The use of apps to create an emulsion effect so that the portrait looks elusive, and yes, haunting, is sublime. I wanted to reach into the image and comfort the subject as I felt her aching”. – Michelle Robinson
