Two umbrellas

Two Umbrellas

Piece description from the artist

Usually rain and cameras don't mix. But, I decided to bring my camera out with me, juggling an umbrella in one hand and my camera in the other. I'd balance the umbrella under my chin to use both hands to frame my shots. I was in Paris for the first time and it was leading up to the Christmas holidays. The rain was so cold it was just about to turn to sleet. Shoppers were out in droves, nevermind the weather. Even though it was freezing and wet, the lights from the street and in the trees cheers up the whole scene. Even a cold, wet, dark winter night in Paris was romantic, and the two umbrellas tell just another love story.

About Amanda Lomax

Nashville, TN

Born in Nashville, TN in 1979, American artist Amanda Lomax lives and works in Nashville, TN and Sandgate, UK. Ms. Lomax holds a cum laude degree in Communications from Boston University, completing coursework in Darkroom and digital photography. She was selected as a Teaching Assistant at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and Maine Media College, and spent several summers learning from renowned photographers: Cig Harvey, Joyce Tenneson, Keith Carter, Aline Simpson and Susan Burnstine. She is a recipient of the 2020 TriStar Arts Award and a graduate of the Periscope Arts Program.

Her work uses digital photography and technology to manifest abstract ideas into tangible pieces of art. She refers to this process as 'Photographic Techspressionism’. This process allows her to play with the boundaries between photography and digital art, drawing inspiration from organic landscapes and her emotional response to these subjects. She is deeply influenced by the work of Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Josef Albers. Color is fundamental as she relies on it to produce a heightened emotional and visual experience for the viewer.
