We are delighted to be able to present Mythica, an exhibition of new work by award winning photographer Lisa Levart, at our conference in April.
Since 2001, Lisa Levart has joined the rapidly growing Earth-centered, spirituality movement by traveling across America creating unique portraits of women. Her Goddess on Earth project draws deeply on ancient mythology to depict fiercely independent women and their personal experience of the divine feminine.
Lisa says, “ I see the Divine in all the women I photograph, and I want to reflect that vision back to them.”
Ancient Techniques Reveal Goddesses on Earth. In her new series, Mythica, Lisa connects the past and present in subject matter, style and technique, while furthering the themes of Goddess on Earth. Referencing vintage 19th Century photographic processes and utilizing the 2000 year-old encaustic medium, the finished pieces illuminate feminist spiritualty and link old pre-patriarchal religions with women’s search for empowerment. Her subjects collaborate with the photographer, choosing what myth to portray and how to actualize its visual representation. Their evocative photographs are both an invitation to witness and engage with what is timeless and archetypal.
For over a decade Lisa has presented Goddesses on Earth, a community specific photographic project, at many venues including art galleries, shopping malls, schools, theaters and community centers. She is currently a finalist in the International Julia Margaret Cameron Awards For Women Photographers and was awarded The Rockland County Executive Award in the Visual Arts. Since 2011, Levart has been a featured blogger for the Huffington Post, where her blogs explore the intersection between art, the divine feminine, women’s empowerment and current events. Lisa lives and works in Nyack, New York.
