Artist Spotlight: Liz Nielsen

A photographic series of abstract shapes and transcendent colouring by Brooklyn-based artist Liz Nielsen. Created without the use of a camera, Nielsen builds her own negatives by hand in a pitch-black environment, using a variety of found light sources like bike lights, cell phones and toys. The unique process also means each photograph is one-of-a-kind, as it is impossible to create the same image twice.

For this particular collection of images Nielsen invites us to join her on a veritable cosmic journey. As she describes:

“I am searching for anomalies: objects with superpowers or landscape hotspots with vortexes. I seek out shapes and symbols, looking for mathematical connections that give order to disorder. The images that I create are compositions of these collected shapes, placed strategically in alignment with the cosmos, with the intention of opening channels for quantum vision, creative breakthroughs, or places for collective consciousness to emerge.”
