Featured Artist: Lydia Panas, “Falling from Grace…”

Posted by The Center on September 16, 2011

Falling From Grace…

I am interested in the facades people present to hide things about themselves. I look at the smallest details to understand what might lie underneath. Together the portraits in this series present a feast:  fruit, vegetable, meat, fish, cake.

We are not sure whether they provide nourishment or taunt us with the gifts. They offer and withhold at once.

Despite their forthright appearance these images suggest a tension.  They connect to the audience and disengage simultaneously, proposing a precarious intimacy. My photographs hover between strength and vulnerability, and speak to issues of connections and trust.
