QVOD VIDES, TOTVM ( all that is seen ), is drawn from the writings of the major philosopher, Seneca the Younger (4BC-64AD). Seneca’s discussions of nature hold a particular fascination for the artist. In his multi-volume work on meteorology, Natural Questions, Seneca proposes that the study of nature is ultimately the study of humanity.
Teresa Emanuele devotes days to woods and wild landscapes, capturing elements of the natural world in an effort to deliver beautiful pictures and subtle metaphors. Each image is an inspirational reminder of that which exists outside of the urban environment and the material world. It is an encouragement to expand our vision, to see the ‘view from above’, the view that liberates us.
