Illuminations by Joyce Tenneson
Haunting, ethereal, pensive, disturbing - all these words describe the photographic work of Joyce Tenneson. Lit by an almost otherworldly glow, her enigmatic nudes and numinous tableaux are a mysterious alchemy of sensuality and spirituality - works that command a complex and intense emotional response from the viewer. ILLUMINATIONS expands on Tenneson's past themes and includes for the first time complex multipanel images suffused with architectural and sculptural details. These resonant photographs, shot in Tenneson's unmistakable style, explore new motifs and new shades of meaning - but continue to summon up the same mystical world of transcendence and personal myth that have always characterised her work.
