Paige Glowacki is a photographer born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Her work features her experience of emotions that are difficult to express in words. Through portraits, especially self-portraits, and still life, Glowacki explores the feeling of being overwhelmed. She captures the simultaneous beauty and destruction in the world around her. Glowacki creates images that are both visually striking and emotionally powerful. Her work exists as a way for her to communicate complicated ideas without utilizing words.
This project explores feelings of nostalgia of her childhood with her Ukrainian grandmother. The stark contrast between light and dark emphasizes the eerie and unsettling nature of innocence. Her work explores the surreal and evokes a sense of unease and discomfort, creating visual metaphors for emotions and ideas.
Contemporary art often challenges perceptions of reality and explores the theme of societal decay. With an eeriness that arises from something familiar and simultaneously unsettling, she creates a sense of loss, nostalgia, of strangeness, an artful fluctuation between presence and absence. She is reminding others that there is still beauty to be found in decay and ruin.
