In abeyance

In abeyance

In abeyance captures the moment in between breaths and stillness. A series of classical modern photographs transposed onto the lineage of Renaissance aesthetic. Ephemeral subjects translate from the mundane to the iconic and become an intentional artifact that situates the viewer in a moment of placelessness.

2016, GHOST 1, Baryta PRINT, 920 x 615 mm

Ghost is a series created in collaboration by Addie Wagenknecht and Aiala Hernando, about hope and disappointment. The title is a reference to the slang term 'ghosting' which is when a person disappears without explanation after dating, sexting, or a short-term relationship, leading to confusion and disappointment about the loss of a temporary fantasy. Semi-opaque tulle and organza rest lightly on top of flowers, perhaps those gifted by a lover, in various states of decay. The images capture the progression of hope and excitement to disappointment, resulting in mourning and the realization that one must start over again.

2016, Still Alive Number 2, Glichée print, 60cm x 96cm

Still Alive is a series created in collaboration by Addie Wagenknecht and Aiala Hernando. The series of three works examines the golden age still life genre from a contemporary perspective of the digital, investigating the implications of modern day life on traditional culture. The work is designed to tease out the importance of the still life, identify value of time, circumstance, and to encourage humorous encounters within our implied secrets of daily modern life.

United Nations

United Nations

For International Women's Day, as part of a non-profit project alongside other female artists, I created an image for the United Nations that celebrates women. I chose to represent a free woman surrounded by nothing but her strong self and the color red. This is a warm color that is associated with our physical needs and our will to survive, with power and courage. Love and joy. But it is also the color of anger and violence. Us, women, are constantly fighting a battle, and our choices are relentlessly taken away from us, undermined or undervalued. This needs to change. Our bodies, our minds, our rights, our choices. Let's stand together to fight for equality. "I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard".
