This is a unique opportunity to explore the exhibition with the artist. Lisa Levart will discuss her creative collaboration with women of the Ramapough Lenape tribe to uncover and embody long-forgotten myths, as well as her technique of collaging image layers into photographic portraits and hand-painting them with an encaustic medium.
About the artist: Lisa Levart specializes in creating portraits of women who are part of the Earth-centered spirituality movement. Using photographic imagery and immersive multimedia installations, she explores the interconnectivity between humans and nature; modern womanhood and ancient mythology; and the sanctity of the Mother Earth. She is the author of "Goddess on Earth: Portraits of the Divine Feminine," which won the GOLD Nautilus Book Award in 2012. Lisa and her husband, Myles Aronowitz, also work as a photography team specializing in New York weddings, life-style portraits and celebrity images.
