“Every once in a while, an artist comes around that has a truly distinctive way of using materials in a fresh new way. Elizabeth Opalenik is one of these artists. Her work connects us with layers of the worlds that often go unnoticed” - Joyce Tenneson.
Welcome to an hour long conversation/ lecture with Fine-Art photographer Elizabeth Opalenik.
In our conversation we look at some of Opalenik most iconic images, and talk about the process behind them. Opalenik shares the images that led to the final result - 'the stepping stones necessary to reach the end goal', so to speak. She also shares with the audience the challenges that comes with working in water, how she works with models, and the different processes she has explored in her artwork.
Opalenik lives and works in Oakland, California. As a photographic artist, Opalenik believes that all good photographs are self portraits that lie somewhere between imagination and dreams.
Opalenik is regarded as one of the most creative artist of her time. Her nearly 40 year career has found her teaching or making images on six continents, seeking the beauty and grace that exists within all things.She employs the Mordançage process, infrared, platinum printing and hand painting in creating her innovative, one-of-a-kind images. She mixes digital and traditional technologies to explore all the creative possibilities.
Elizabeth Opalenik’s work is collected, published and exhibited in museums, galleries and private collections internationally. In 2007, she published her first monograph, Poetic Grace: Elizabeth Opalenik Photographs 1979-2007
Her latest book project, 'WORKSHOP STORIES: Changed Through Photography' is set to be published in 2020/21.
