I'd Like to Buy a Vowel!
This week, ArtWalk is featuring the photographic work of Landmark Studios.
Landmark Studios has produced a collection of 4 by 6 inch black and white photographs by award winning photographer Scott Bosley. The photographs show various natural objects, architectural elements and other common objects that, in their shape and contrast, resemble letters of the alphabet, and were shot in South Carolina .
Letters are lifted from old, hand painted billboards and neon signs, but also from less obvious sources, such as suspension bridges, manhole covers, railways, parking garages, knotted trees and a myriad of other everyday objects. Each letter comes in a variety of forms, "and choosing which image you would like to have represent a particular letter allows for a great deal of customizing and personality, as well as fun," an ArtWalk spokesperson said.
The letters could be used to spell out initials or a first name, the last name of a newly wed couple, a company name or a phrase.
"They make for a lasting and meaningful gift for birthdays, baby showers, Hanukah, Christmas, graduation, and other significant events," the spokesperson said.
Frames are also available and come with mats with multiple openings that can hold any where from two photos to eight.
"The black mat, black frame, and black and white images combine to form a very sophisticated and unique addition to the home or office," the spokesperson said.
Landmark's photographs are located in ArtWalk's main level. With three and a half floors and more than 300 local, regional and national artists, ArtWalk is located at 611 W.
