Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artists Janelle Pietrzak & Aloyse Blair
Through the alchemy of photography, these performance-based, long exposure images use self-portraiture to explore transcendence, nature and the sacred feminine. By using an in-camera photographic process, the resulting images are documents of hallowed events. Ceremonially invoking the divine, the veil between human and goddess becomes transparent and the presence of nature is revealed as an active entity. Inspired by the haunting images of Anna Mendieta and Francesca Woodman, these self-portraits not only incorporate exceptional physical locations, but also the artists’ quest for spirituality. Inspired by their location, these documented rituals blur the line between performance, art, divinity and the power of nature.
