Description

In this celebration of the history of photography, transcendentalism, light, and color, this body explores spontaneous arrangements of decaying plant matter exposed onto light-sensitive emulsion. These documents of the organic bits of the artistsā?? day-to-day life serve as a means for meditating on the beauty of her surroundings amid the chaos of daily life.

Artist Statement:

"[Savanna Pettengill's] photography is like captive sparks of celebration. There is an energy about her work that feels like a mystery, one that we are all somehow connected to. You can feel there is a secret you're running with her to find, or to hide it. Light in corners, shadows on the beach, out of doors in all seasons. She manages to capture the essence of life and liveliness with excitement, sadness and the constant ebb and flow of their simultaneous beauty." - Kristen Kellas Belk, former owner of the Oak and the Ax music and arts venue, formerly in Biddeford, Maine
