A word from the artist...

You will remember this is a play on perception, memory, and their interaction with physical objects and space. The work is informed by research in photography and the behavioral sciences. Nathaniel Borek is a bureaucrat by day and an avid meme enthusiast at night. Photography and the visual arts have had an on-again, off-again relationship with Borek since 2001. Borek believes that power is found in art through inclusive community building and organizing around artistic practices, studies, and activism.

Artist Statement:

My artwork focuses on identity, sexuality and the female figure. The works are inspired and shaped by my own personal experiences, the historical and the natural world. The series is a collection of black and white self portraits surrounded by flora. I use monotype printmaking techniques to illuminate my concepts. Monotype provides intense values which evoking a mood of loneliness and quiet. Varying values of black help create an all encompassing darknesses that surrounds the nude figure and the flowers which are used as symbols of sexuality, femininity and race. The flora also act as metaphors for enslavement and the cultural appropriation of the black female figure. Through the work I attempt to discover more about myself and the history I am a part of.

A word from the artist:

My work examines the relationship between physical space and sense of place. I explore how shifts and alterations in the perspective, color, and pattern of a space result in changes to a place’s purpose or feeling, be it domestic, pastoral, professional, or otherwise. The goal is to foster disruptions that create a new experience of space, challenge the eye, and activate a childlike curiosity.
