Digital Art

My boyfriend turned me on to some great surreal, conceptual photography by Miss Aniela and Brooke Shaden. I have always had a fascination with levitation and love anything to do with water, especially still water which is particularly prevalent in Brooke Shaden's work. I was going through some of Shaden's shots and I found some really striking, beautifully feminine ones that I want to share...I especially love this one below because it looks so effortless with her soft pale flowing dress and her pointed foot just gently tipping the surface of the water. It seems calm and quiet yet her hair brings a nearly frenzied feel to it. I love the glowing contrast between the flowers and dress with the background of the muted, dull forest. The tones of Shaden's shots give them a great vintage feel..

Some of her stuff is quite dark, gothic and twisted but I found that in her shots the bright colours and movement of the dresses always stood out to show a great feminine vibrance against the muddy, hazy backgrounds bringing life to them. Spirited and luminescent in a static and stale world.
Miss Aniela is similar to Brooke Shaden, although she has the contrast of also having quite upbeat, bright shots that can instill a sense of calm and serenity like this shot below...

Miss Aniela's work includes a series called Multiplicity which is mainly made up of self portraits of her in different poses cloned within the same shot. It's similar to the female mind, there may be only one of her but she has all these different sides to her that are in constant motion within her to create who she is. I love this shot below, displaying her in the height of multi-tasking. The image to the fore is one of cool, collected elegance while in the background she is engrossed in an array of tasks.

The two artists have that amazing innate ability to create images that are like mini narratives or poems, challenging and capturing the viewers imagination.  Check out and to experience some striking digital fine art...
