Nuova Baroque

This body of work combines photography and performance in an ongoing conversation about relevant discourses in contemporary practice and art history, specifically by reflecting our current time of uncertainty and environmental decline in conversation with the Baroque period. Current events bombard us with images of disaster, war, and suggestions of our impending demise as a species. Our human hearts are calling out for beauty, spiritual connection and, at times, even the need to celebrate our collective imperfection. The project title plays upon the word “baroque” with its relation to the meaning of an imperfect pearl.
