Last Sunday I went for a quick walk to a picturesque village near Pamplona, the city where I live, with the idea to explore the surroundings. For me it was a great adventure, because I need a walker to move around and it is useless to go thru the paths full of stones. I’m confined to the city. But this time a friend challenged me and offered me help. So I ventured walking leaning on my friend’s arm. For the first time in years, I have been in the middle of nature. We left behind the houses, took a path and went on thru the green fields to contemplate the nice sights of the nearby mountains. We even spotted an eagle flying around. It was a short hiking. Only a few minutes, but enough to feel the charm of the nature. What a joy! I took some pictures.
Semi-precious in a wide variety of colors. *** Miniatures serve as iconographic objects. Not real people, places or things, but simplistic versions of such. This allows for abstracted views of reality. The perfect medium for creating visual representations of memories and emotions – abstractions of reality within themselves. *** An introspective, introverted empath, bursting with anxiety and 90s kid nostalgia, Tourmaline (JNW) creates images full of desolation, malcontent and longing by transforming her hand-built miniature tableaus through her camera lens. Her images draw influence from her midwestern roots and Florida youth. Tourmaline (JNW) graduated from the University of North Florida in the Spring of 2013 with a Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Photography, and minors in Art History and Professional Education.
