Michael Endicott is an Urban Nature Impressionist exploring the interaction between the “subset environment” constructed by us and the “hosting environment” dictated by nature. There is a constant feedback loop between the two that affects us, both physically and culturally, as individuals and as a species. His manipulations of the light captured by his camera are like chiseling away at a piece of marble to find the element inside the scene that“triggers response.”
This process can pull his photography into the realm of expressionist or abstract painting, not by adding color via digital programming, but by "bending" the different wavelengths of light inherent in the original photograph. The effect can substantially alter viewers’ immediate understanding of the subject, while adding layers of dialog between us and nature.
Michael's Contemporary Art combines words and images under the theme of "Choose Joyful." Here, Michael's whimsical side takes precedence, and his digital drawing, consisting of strong colors and bold lines, combines with the art’s title to buoy the spirits as we face the daily challenges and questioning inherent in our "humanity” and common to us all.
His photographs and art are for sale and he welcomes commissions. There is much joy to be had in collaborating on specific pieces for your home or business establishment. Follow his daily posts on Instagram @michaelbendicott. Be sure to read the accompanying titles.
Bogomir is a free-lance artist, who works in many media, including doodling, drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. He has an extensive collection of nature, flower, and people photography. He has also combined his drawings with his photography, either superimposing the two or drawing on live canvases and then capturing their movements in time and space. These combinations occur in indoor or outdoor settings, and superimpose his creations onto architecture, graffiti and nature.
I paint for the pure joy of putting paint on canvas and making something unusual and beautiful. Painting makes me observe more, and look less. There are so many small wonders in life that we miss in our hurried existence. Painting for me is therapy and solace. I wish to convey that feeling in the images I create. I hope that when people look at my work, they find the joy and wonder of light and life.
