Reflecting on Nature   (Hämeenkyrö, Finland – July 2016 )

        There is no such thing as compromising with nature; we simply abide by how it lives and exist as a part of it. Nature is very relevant to each individual’s well- being, but more so than it is part of us, we are part of it.

         Often times, mirrors are used to emphasize the minute details, but rarely used to look at the big picture. What if nature looked at itself? What would it see? What would we be? Would our identity stand out or would we be a small detail? Would nature change us? Would we be a beauty mark or a blemish? Accentuated? Concealed?

         From observing nature’s schedule and landscapes, I placed myself in its environments while nature looked at itself in the mirror. 

Biography

      Loreal Prystaj is a visual artist based in New York City.  She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and received a BFA in photography Fall 2013. Her work often times exposes the relationship between time and space, with a juxtaposition of the human form and it’s environment.  She expresses ideas through using photography as her base medium and expands ideas through video, installation, performance, and interactive pieces. Often time’s nature is implemented in her work, and she uses symbolism in order to find the animate in the inanimate and to break the animate down to its essential components. 

            Prystaj saw her first solo show take place in New York’s Lower East Side, exhibiting venue Gallery Sensei, introducing her renowned series, Being (February 2015).  Since then, she continues to exhibit in New York, alongside with showing bodies of work internationally, such as Japan, France, Italy, China, Finland, and throughout the States.

           This Fall 2017, She will be attending the Royal College of Art in London to receive her MA.
