ARTmostfierce Affordable Print Pick of the Week

Judy Natal

Beauty from the series Earthwords
Silver gelatin print, 12 x 9"

ARTmostfierce Affordable Print Pick of the Week goes to Photographer Judy Natal. I do not know if we are related but, I hope we are since we have the same last name and I saw her photo and she can easily pass for a family member! Anyway...I had been looking at her work for a while and find it quite interesting. This image is available at Lightwork for a very affordable price and the title says it all ...BEAUTY!

Also MoCP (Museum of Contemporary Photography )has another Judy Natal limited edition print available from the EarthWords series. See below.

On the Road, from the series: EarthWords, 1999
Gelatin silver print, selenium toned
8 1/8 by 10 5/8 inches on 11 x 14 inch paper
Edition of 50

(American, b. 1952)

Natal created 200 images while in Joshua Tree National Park, Ca, and has extended her study of "earth words" to landscapes in France and Italy. With this exhibition, it is her intent to "explore the parallel relationships between art and language, photography and language, and the origins of art and language, connecting the symbolic use of text and the visual aspects of language, with the constructed reality of photography and the necessity of the photograph to be read."
