The Pendulum, The Pit, and Hope opens at Metro Gallery November 7th and will be showing until November 29th.

This work strives to find the most overlooked or ordinarily mundane subjects and locate the corner where it all gets weird. To witness the irk in life. Little explorations in the moment between a grim reality and a possibly great reality, the space between despair and enlightenment. There is a comfort there, as these sensations are the sustenance of life, but there is also the spook of fate in our bones.

The photographs conjure this sensation while giving new light to the spook. There is always a sense of hope in all these mixed emotions, if one resists the whitewashing methods of this America and the dumbing, numbing, narrowing down of letting fear live here. The photographs are carefully conceived in seconds. The work is often composed entirely of painterly moods from hues, stark instances, quaint folks or insect perspectives. The camera for Natasha, lives in this hope and that spook, and channels it by hand.
