Shannon Black - About the artist
Born in Hamilton. New Zealand, Shannon Black has been creating experimental fine art photography for over 30 years. With a Bachelor of Visual Arts from The Queensland College of Art in Australia, Shannon has established a distinct style characterized by layered imagery and rich color. Her works have been showcased in numerous exhibitions and publications across the world.
Inspired by film and cinematography, Shannon creates photographic collages that evoke a mood and tone that is both eerily sombre and peacefully calming. Through a combination of paint, light, and the still image, Shannon crafts works that are both visually stunning and emotionally impactful.
Shannon currently lives in California, USA.
My work explores the intersection of photographic reality and constructed narrative, using color, light and layered imagery to create images that seek to evoke emotion and spark a connection between the viewer and the piece.
