Hi. I'm John. Welcome to the online home of Knell StudioWorks. I"m glad you're here. Please hang out, explore the site and spend some time with my story and my work. It is my hope that both can be of service to you.
If I had to describe these I'd say that my collage mashups take inspiration from the digitally chaotic, data driven, always connected, information overloaded world in which we all live. For me they are akin to a visual Google search result as they combine photo images, art textures, written words and graphic elements together to form a dynamic visual story that is both uniquely expressive and visually interesting.
One of the things I love to do is go on "photo walkabouts" where I can take the time to explore and document the landscapes, environments, textures and moods found around my home in the Heartland as well as wherever my creative muse takes me. This collection is some of my best.
Another one of my passions is my writing and I find my blog as a great outlet for me to express things in ways that my art can't. Read more about my creative process, my inspirations, my political rants (um...no...) and whatever else is on my mind.
