What good is a work of art if it doesn’t tug at you in some way? Art that doesn’t challenge, inspire or invoke an emotional reaction in you generally leads to little appreciation of the piece, leaving a sense of dissatisfaction and making little to no impact on the art community.
Beatri Nel works to create pieces that both challenge your perception and make your imagination soar. Through the skillful, even masterful conception and development of photographic images, many of which that combine the elegance of the nude feminine form against a breathtaking scene of nature, Nel challenges the viewer’s idea not only of what is possible with a camera, but also how powerful and inspiring a piece of work can truly be.
Beatri Nel envelops herself into every project, leaving no stone unturned and no detail ignored on her way to the development of something truly mysterious, magical and mystifying. Her goal is to create something that serves as a catalyst for inspiration; beautiful images that force the viewer to reconsider how they see and feel about the environment, about nature and about the human body. The truth of the moment is what truly drives Beatri Nel; something that inspires to unlock an images mystery and to present the viewer with the subject’s innermost secrets and power.
Nel has a genuine interest in making the viewer feel something special, and to engage the viewer in a way they’ve never quite experienced before. A considerable and notable talent in the South African art community, Nel promises to have the passion, skill and focus needed to be at the forefront of her craft for many years to come.
