Showfile Ltd announces a new contributor from the world of fine art

UK Showfile Limited, the distributor of digital scenery, video and still images for theatre projection and television chromakey green screen, has announced the addition of artist and designer Nancy Wood as a major new content contributor.

Nancy's work uses the viscosity of fluid acrylics and inks to attract or repel one another to create ever evolving patterns. The work is filmed in ultra-high resolution as it is made, to create stunningly beautiful morphing, looped video sequences. The finished work can also be used as still images.

Vince Herbert, managing director of Showfile, said: "We are delighted that Nancy has allowed her work to become part of the Showfile portfolio. Her unique style lends itself perfectly to our marketplace; her images, although abstract, have direct relationships to that of the natural world. In addition their movement makes them ideal for backgrounds for television commercials as well as projection for theatre productions. We are offering high resolution stills of her work but also videos of her paintings as they were made, the morphing of which delivers something unique and very special."

Nancy Wood said: "I never cease to be awestruck by the power of pigments to create a kaleidoscope of organic effects reminiscent of the evolution of nature."

In 1996 Wood's work moved towards more abstract themes. Her works were widely published and sold throughout the UK and have been featured in the Grand Designs television series, Elle Decoration magazine and there are five paintings on board Cunard's Queen Victoria cruise ship. More recently Nancy began experimenting with pigment behaviour to capture compositions from the intricate patterns formed when pigment molecules interact.

Nancy's work 'Pigment Alchemy' is being exhibited at London's Store Street Gallery between the 19th October and 12th November 2016.

Showfile was established by Vince Herbert in 2010 to supply stock footage, video clips, loops, long filmed sequences and textures to theatre, television, content makers and events. In early 2016 it became a limited company in order to support its growing list of contributors and customers.
