NICHOLE TALBOTT'S THE POWER OF NATURE
This is a series of images that I have been working with representing the Orixas, Africa deities found in the of Yoruba religious system brought to the Americas through the transatlantic slave trade. Orixas are divine energies represented through nature’s forces. Acting as mediators guiding us back to our origins of strength and connecting us to our higher power, a guiding voice, our conscious, an ancestor, a saint, a force of nature.
Through these images I'm reflecting on our disconnect to nature. In our drive to create we have moved further and further away from the essential elements of life. Blocking the power of nature, our natural higher power. We need to tap back into nature. Opening ourselves up to receive the message from those who have been before us. To accept the message that will repair and rejuvenate all that we have destroyed. We need to reconnect.
