Taken by Storm
A summer storm over the roiling ocean provides a moving muse for artist Jen Rork. She creates this evocative seascape, along with its companion piece Tidal Shift, on a small scale by mixing drops of alcohol inks on pristine white tiles. She manipulates the pigment using fans, gravity, and by blowing air to create beautiful swirls. She then photographs her miniature masterpieces at the most picturesque moment and blows up the artwork to enhance every plume and undulation in detail. Navy and sky blues intertwine suggesting the churning depths as the rain mixes with the deep. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.
