The Addison Center for the Arts presents, Joanne Barsanti’s, “Delicate Beauty” fine art exhibition of photomontages. “Delicate Beauty” opens Wednesday, March 27, 2019, and continues through April 26, 2019. Everyone is invited to enjoy the artist reception Friday, March 29 from 6 to 8 PM.
“Delicate Beauty” offers viewers a serene stroll through a Japanese garden. The collection is a series of photomontages: thoughtfully chosen photographs and textures combined to create nature scenes and portraits with an underlying message of peacefulness and serenity, innocence and purity, struggle and hope, strength and resilience, and delicacy of both materials and subject matter.
Joanne Barsanti is an award-winning artist who uses her photography to create nature-based scenes and “portraits” with a unique style and texture. She combines traditional subject matter and processes with modern technology to take her photography to a new level.
Ms. Barsanti’s work is one part creative inspiration, one part the snap of the shutter, and one part the magic that comes from playful use of digital technology. Birds, bonsai, water, Koi, and other items typically found in a Japanese Garden are reworked and carefully composited in her fantasy scenes. Underlying it all, these elements have been chosen carefully to portray the struggle and tension we often face; but with the underlying message of hope, harmony, long-life, and good fortune.
