In Tripping the Light Fantastic, the world’s simplest wonders are made extraordinary through the lens of photographers from across the globe. Everyday focal points are uniquely captured in this grand display of thought provoking images and technical mastery. From breathtaking depictions of nature to dramatic portrayals of the human condition, this exhibit will revise the way we see the world. Included in the exhibition is Premiere Portfolio Member Mary Mansey. She has been a Premiere Portfolio Member at absolutearts.com since October 2007.
Growing up in the picturesque French alpine village on the shores of Lac d’Annecy, Mary Mansey has had a life-long devotion to exploring the beauty of natural world. Her crisp photographs features rugged cliffs and peaceful reeds, grasses, and forests situated around bodies of water. She employs severe cropping and unusual perspectives to emphasize the wonderful light and reflections made possible by moving water. Her art has an emotional quality to it, instilled by her own personal struggles in love and life. "I try to capture the strange echoing silence of drifting on a lake," she says, "the impossible stillness of the current." Mansey’s photographs seek to transmit the contemplative ambience offered by a tranquil natural setting, in the belief that art can function as a catalyst for well-being.
Her travels to various towns and cities around the Mediterranean have had a great influence on Mansey’s artistic interests. Mary Mansey currently resides in the French Alps town of Aix-les-Bains, and works as a graphic designer for several prestigious French companies.
