Pacha Mama: earth realm
Photographic Collages by Lynda Frese
ATLAS (Awards to Louisiana Artists and Scholars), Baton Rouge, LA., 2011. 6 pp., 3, 9x11".

Publisher's Description
The images in this book imagine a set of religious iconography using ideas borrowed from the Italian Renaissance and indigenous cultures of South America. In this collection, the Saints and the Nature Spirits are fused together in hybrid landscapes. The narrative is about the South American earth goddess Pachamama, who appears as a divine entity to us in the natural world. Themes of redemption and enchantment, death and renewal are echoed in the texts, poems and Sanskrit prayers. Frese’s photographic images come from ancient sites ranging from pre-historic Europe, the jungles and lands of the Mayans, to Louisiana’s Gulf of Mexico, where the artist lives. Transparent layers of egg tempera paint, made with antique pigments and egg yolks from the studio environments where she is working, are painted over the printed collage images. With text contributions by Louisiana’s poet laureate Darrell Bourque, yogi Michele Baker and dancer/filmaker Kathi von Koerber; including an introduction by artist Lynda Frese.
