DescriptionTaken from a 2006 Nine Inch Nails concert that I attended. Nine Inch Nails was and still is one of my favorite bands, this capture was taken during the song 'Closer', one of their most popular songs. The nature of this song combined with the passionate red lighting was a spectacular experience that I will never forget. Being in the middle of the rowdy crowd during this concert, I couldn't obtain a crisp and perfect shot. But this frenetic blurry capture feels more like being there. The energy of the crowd, being shoved around, ear splitting sound, the electricity of the moment, that is what i like to remember the most.Number two in a two part series.Please note this image is intentionally blurred.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
