Allan Forsyth

Allan Forsyth (b. 1971) is a photographic artist based in London. Forsyth’s work explores a breadth of themes, reflected in the range of techniques he employs. Analogue and digital exposures taken by the artist exist in his work, alongside computer generated imagery, photograms, and photographic collages from historic magazines and vintage postcards.

Forsyth’s work conveys his love of the drama of nature, seeking to expand the beauty of natural forms that we sometimes overlook in everyday life showing an extra dimension in his work. The resulting works are mesmerising, vivid images of flora and fauna created by Forsyth using various photographic techniques to enhance colour and create movement.

Allan Forsyth often uses extensive digital manipulation in editing his images, resulting in a photographic aesthetic that is highly stylised and immediately recognisable. He identifies himself as ‘an artist that uses photography’ rather than a photographer, emphasising the importance of the image over the tools and processes. This move away from the camera has also led Forsyth to explore camera-less photo imaging techniques like the photogram, a Victorian Era process in which light projected onto photosensitive paper captures the silhouette of an object placed in front of it.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
