Talk: Natalie Christensen – at Nordic Art Agency (SE)

18. June

Virtual artist talk with artist Natalie Christensen from Santa Fe about her exhibition SEMBLANCES OF THRESHOLDS & BOUNDARIES at Nordic Art Agency.

Natalie Christensen is a photographer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her compositions which capture both colour, line and texture feels almost more like a painting than a digital photograph. She is drawn to the light and surreal qualities it created by negative space. There is a playful unexpected quality to her images which are intriguing and conjure an evolving narrative.

“The beauty of this environment is clear to most people; however, my interest is to explore the more banal suburban landscapes that may not be noticed by the casual observer and to draw attention to the drama that is missed. I am using symbols and shapes, line and shadow, to present psychological metaphors in the landscape. Closed and open doors, shadows and swimming pools draw me to a scene as they invite conjecture.” – Natalie Christensen

Natalie studies colour fields, geometric shapes and juxtapositions created by the light and shadow. Her images emphasise what is happening within the frame and invite the viewer to contemplate what is happening outside the edges but that which can’t be seen. This serves as a reminder that there is always something there, below the surface of awareness, threatening to reveal something new.
