Bella Hauser's Artist Statement

Longing, 2021 Digital Prints
https://hauseri21.wixsite.com/artwebsite

When creating art, I portray dramatic emotion through photos. In order to achieve this, I focus on lighting, point of view, and contrast. Chronologically, the different themes I have photographed have been chance, absence, trust, fear, and longing.

The trust and fear projects were my two proudest examples of work. I chose trust as one of my themes because trust is one of the main foundations of my life. My project introduced me to diptych images taken by the artist Dawoud Bey. This quickly became the main technique I used in all of my photos. I also learned the skill of deadpanning, which I now use in the diptych and triptych images to hone in on one main area of focus.

This term, her goal was to convey the theme of longing in her artwork in order to create more thought-provoking pieces. The Longing Photography series has six photos that all connect back to the feeling of want and longing, which is quite fitting for our day and age. With COVID-19, people around the world are longing to once again feel a connection with others and return back to normal life. In the triptych, there are two figures who are longing and reaching for one another. The piece resembles The Creation of Adam painting by Michelangelo in the form of three separate photographs. The middle photo is lighter than the other two since the mood is lighter when the two figures are closer to one another, finally being able to fill that sense of longing. The photos move along the LED screen, enhancing the blue light, with the noise of moving water playing in the background

Overall, art has taught me how to express feelings that are difficult to describe in words. Art lets people portray emotions without having to speak, letting the viewer connect with others simply through a photo.
