Laurie Tennent Artist Statement and Biography (1, 2)
“Strength and Fragility. This duality is what my subject matter explores. My presentation is in line with traditional photography. However, degrees of ambiguity remain. Ambiguity in the choice of subject: Flowers, fragile by nature, but whose strength of form creates the impression of a strong sensuality. Ambiguity in size: Exaggerating delicate natural forms allow the spectator the opportunity to be confronted and submerged by the objects. Ambiguity in presentation: Blurring the lines between painting and photography. I hope to take the viewer away from the constant digital noise in our environment to a serene and meditative space.” Laurie Tennent on her Botanicals
