Felice's Artwork in the Juried International Photgraphy Exhibition
“Portraits Without Faces”


August 9 – September 1, 2018

PH21 Contemporary Photography Gallery
Hungary, H-1092 Budapest, Ráday u. 55.

Portraiture emerged as one of the most prominent genres of depictive media early in the history of the visual arts; tacit or explicit rules, conventions and cultural expectations have always influenced the ways in which artists approached the genre. Photography is no exception. Numerous different and characteristic styles of portraiture emerged throughout the history of the medium. We usually assume that faces are necessary components of portraiture; we may, however, learn just as much about the character, the personality of a person by looking at images that depict other parts of their bodies, show us the objects or places associated with them. Not focusing on the face may open up a new dimension of interpretation. "Portraits Without Faces" exhibition is dedicated to this challenging divergence from the more conventional approaches to the genre.

Widely recognized for her sophisticated color photography of Southeast Asia, Willat has developed in her new "Stillness" series a unique mode of black-and-white photography tinged with occasional splashes of green and brown. The stunning results bring viewers to a meditative state in which we can find a place inside to reflect on our super busy lifestyles.

Felice's "Stillness" series is the result of her recent trip to the Huangshan Mountains of China, where she immersed herself in contemplative landscape photography, creating a synthesis of photography and traditional Chinese landscape painting, fusing art with the Buddhist concept of seeing with mindfulness and stillness.
