Artwork by Natasha Bacca Selected for the Newly Renovated Marriott Hotel in Downtown New Orleans



Last month Marriott International purchased two artworks by Natasha Bacca for its newly renovated hotel in downtown New Orleans, LA. They selected two photo prints from my tree series



TREES

In line with my one of a kind artwork, I choose nature as an analogous subject as all elements of nature are unique.  With no two leaves, trees, flowers, or other natural elements ever being exactly alike, I bring to light the intricate textures and details of my subjects, giving attention and appreciation to every aspect through careful arrangement and layering.  I use nature as a catalyst to explore concepts of life and health.  Nature exhibits a transitory beauty, an ephemeral symbol of the cycle of life that engages the Earth as a living medium, reminding viewers that life is meaningful, temporary, and sacred.

I have always had extremely vivid and intense dreams.  I can still recall many from a very young age.  I often learn from my dreams, and I have many insights while dreaming.  Much awareness and understanding can come from dreams, and the ability to harness that power is something I enjoy practicing. 


I began creating my Dream Trees series in 2010.  I did not set out to create dream related imagery that day in the darkroom; however, as I was experimenting with different materials and techniques, the contrast between sharp and soft focus of elements was striking to me.  It felt very much like a dream, where some elements are precise and clear and others are out of focus and intangible.  The swirling lines naturally created movement, so I juxtaposed them with trees to ground the images and root the concept of dreams represented by art.
