Art & Photography portfolio presentation by Cassandra Kendall. The video montage shows the lifestyle of the modern cowgirl and spirit of the west through the eyes of an equestrian artist.
Inspired by American modern artists and nature photographers, such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams, Cassandra Kendall is a full-time fine artist who specializes in equestrian portraiture and landscapes.
Currently working out of her private studio in San Diego, California, Cassandra is focused on creating large-scale paintings and photographic art prints. These works of art embody nature, as well as theatrical wilderness concepts.
Kendall's strong interest in art & photography began during her teens when she started traveling to the mountains to hike with her father, artist and musician, Dudley Kendall. Enriched by nature, she was motivated to capture the dramatic landscapes and seascapes of places she loved to visit. Fantastic destinations that include the Sierra Nevada, Yosemite, Pacific Northwest, Europe, Mexico, South America, and Hawaii.
Cassandra's experience with nature photography also enabled her to become a photojournalistic style wedding photographer. For 30 years, Kendall embraced the art of portraiture and significance of capturing evocative mementos. For instance, that fleeting moment, at first glance, when the groom see's his beautiful bride in her wedding gown. Or, the heartfelt impact of a passionate kiss, when husband and wife celebrate the words I do.
In return, these lifetime events were about observing and learning from each experience. Essentially, they are the emotive force behind Kendall's artistic decisions and why she became an artist in the first place.
A romantic at heart, Kendall approaches each art piece with a meaningful question: "How will this impact the audience and start a conversation? In order to promote a serendipitous relationship between the viewer and visual art itself, I believe ART must connect with their emotions; mentally and spiritually. Thus, inviting the audience and their imagination to interpret for themselves, what the art means and how they feel."
