Roarke Sharlow is an accomplished fine art photographer working with digital imaging. Digital manipulation has become integral to his creating painterly images with his photographs.
Roarke has been an avid photographer since 1984. While attending the State University College at Buffalo, NY, he studied photography as part of his requirements for the B.S. in Art Education. Working under the direction of Les Krims he developed the skills of photographic printing and imaging. Upon graduation he took a position teaching art and photography in western New York until moving to Warren, VT to devote time on fine-art photography.
His continuing pursuit of photography led to his participation in workshops with Brian Lav, a distinguished contemporary photographer, and with Jane Tuckerman, nationally recognized for her alternative photographic techniques.
Roarke has had several solo and group exhibitions and is a yearly participant in the Vermont Photography Show at the Green Mountain Cultural Center. He works with strong, striking compositions to create limited edition photographic prints.
“Creating an emotional balance within each piece permits me to bring forth the image’s technical and emotional qualities. The play of light and shadow across textural surfaces offers the opportunity to develop strong tactile qualities.”
High quality production techniques result in archival photographs that will last a lifetime and increase in value.
Roarke offers workshops for all abilities. 802-583-2224 for information.
Photographs are matted with acid-free, archival mats and framed with quality moldings. Framed pieces arrive ready for hanging. Price adjustments can be made should you prefer the work matted only for your own framing.
