I really like silhouettes, to me it tells a story without giving any detail its pleasant, classic, and looks sleek. It can be dramatic and powerful with only giving you the outline of something against a lighter background, similar to a shadow.
I decided to pick silhouettes as in previous projects I have used this art technique.
Charls burn is a modern day Silhouette Artist who considers his work to be of a secret and knows what exactly his artist statement is. Other Silhouette Artist now promote there work by selling it! Using it to create cards or banners for weddings and other events, it’s becoming extremely popular. Alison Russell is another artist in England who thinks of herself as one of the few good silhouette artist still around!
Both Charls and Alison both have very similar themes in there silhouettes, very 1940s and rustic.
