About Amar Sheow

ARTIST STATEMENT:
My work is the integration of a lifetime appreciation and exposure to art, guided by intuition, instinct, observation, and personal perspective. I aim is to share my work with wide audiences.
For me, inspiration comes from the natural and forged world, and is influenced by art works of the masters and various art genres. I am drawn to the beauty in the landscape, the self-expression afforded by abstract and conceptuals, and the bare essentials of minimalism. My body of work is perhaps best described as eclectic. During my travels I make it a point to visit local galleries and museums.
Always scouting locations for shoots as I go about my daily tasks, I am camera-ready to capture serendipitous moments.
In the vast majority of my work, I utilize ambient light on location at all hours of day and night, and balance/enhance light and shadow in post production.
I hope you find something to relate to in my work, and I welcome your comments.
'Art is food for the soul' Amar Sheow
“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” ~Henri Cartier-Bresson

BIOGRAPHY:
Amar was born in British Guiana, South America. In his late-teens he moved to the United States; over thirty years ago he holidayed on Grand Cayman, fell in love with the Island and settled there, where he lives in George Town. He is the father of four children and a proud grandfather of six.
Amar is self taught and for as long as he can recall, has been taking photographs. His early inspiration came from paintings in the traditional and modern styles. He often exhibits in the Cayman Islands.
In 2012 & 2013 Amar was awarded 2nd place for his works “Caffeine Effect” & “Stellar Eclipse” respectively, in the Conceptual Category of the Cayfest Competition hosted by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation; these two pieces can be viewed here in his Conceptual gallery.
His two dimensional collage “copy, cut, paste” was exhibited in “The Art of Assemblage” at The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands and his work “Tao Chi” in the “Panorama of Latin American” exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Gallery, Montreal, Canada, and can also be viewed here in his Rust Art Gallery.
His work entitled “Change” was exhibited in the Gallery at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman during Summer 2013 and can be viewed here in his Abstract gallery.
His work has been featured prominently in almanac publications in the Cayman Islands and in private collections on Grand Cayman, U.S.A., Canada, U.K., and Italy.
You are cordially invited to view his portfolio; leave a comment and he will respond personally. If you enjoyed his work please share it with your friends.
Thank you!
