Nazrene is a multidisciplinary artist from Atlanta, GA. with a current focus in film photography and sculpture painting. The work gradually evolved from being a reflection on the politics within her heritage to exploring the mindfulness of our emotions. In the paintings you will frequently see use of different materials creating abstract flowers that encompass the acceptance of reality in a form of meditation and acceptance.  With the use of multiple exposure in film photography, the imagery  encapsulate our vivid but hazy sensations we have when asleep. Collectively you will see her work draw the tie between communication and human tendencies broken down into beautiful fragments.
