Teresa Camozzi addresses the fragility of our environment, its beauty and its desecration. “My core belief is that the beauty of nature lifts us toward a higher state of spirituality and consciousness; by basing my art in the mathematics of nature I seek to achieve a balance of mind and heart. My objective is to assist viewers in attaining inner equilibrium so that they may make wise choices in their everyday lives and salvage our ecology.”
“Nature’s order has fascinated me all my life. I have studied it in the form of sacred geometry, the dynamic symmetry of the Greek and Egyptian art, the structure of humans and plants and the five regular geometric solids. Above all, I regard the human skeleton as my prime motivational source. It is my belief that above all, artwork must resonate most acutely with our own nature. The skeletal structure is our own architecture. My art becomes a physical metaphor for achieving balance between individuals and society, passion and intelligence, instinct and reason.”

Teressa’s newest Offering “TEMPORARY ALTARS”
The series ”Temporary Altars” was born from my search for spiritual enlightenment in the
midst of my escapist response to current global situations. The altars are in the tradition of
Tibetan Thangkas, transportable references for meditation. It also is a sort of Stonehenge of
glass, music, and math in the “pure painting” compositions of Kandinsky or the Sonia
Delaunay’s prismatic light.
I deliberately compose purified glass vessels, then digitally photograph unrepeatable moments in changing natural lighting. The images, though representational, tend to become increasingly abstract as they distort the perceptions of time and space. The luminescence conveys a sense of infinity through the lack of volume and the absence of perspectival grounding.
Using computers I enhance the photos solely to capture the moment of the shoot, enabling
delivery out of the computer, the form of which currently is duratrans film. The transformation
from the intimate to the monumental occurs when film is placed on a light box, to further
the luminescence, and then installed on a wall at nearly any scale.
