SECOND PLACE WINNER
(Click on image for larger view)

Nancy Oliveri is an American artist born in Providence, Rhode Island. She lives and maintains a photography studio practice in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. She studied film, photography and conceptual art at the Hartford Art School in Hartford, CT.

Her photographs have been selected extensively for juried group and solo competitions and exhibitions in the US and internationally including Budapest, Venice and Berlin. Oliveri’s upcoming group exhibitions include The Still Life at A. Smith Gallery in Johnson, Texas curated by Kate Breakey and Flora & Fauna curated by Kat Kiernan at the South x Southeast Photo Gallery in Molena, Georgia.

She has been acknowledged by the Julia Margaret Cameron and Pollux awards and will be included in the 5th Biennial of Fine Art &Documentary Photography in Barcelona in October 2018.

In 2017 she completed a photographic fine art and documentary project on the Gowanus Canal. Oliveri exhibited 52 images of unstaged dead wildlife and abstract images of contamination, iridescent oil slicks and industrial waste, plastic flowers and jellyfish in and around the Canal which was one of the most toxic waterways in the US. Her photo book titled GOWANUS was included in the Griffin Museum of Photography’s self-published photo book exhibition.

Her recent studio work in 2018 focuses on a staged Still Life series which evolved from the Canal images of dead birds floating in the canal. It’s inspired by the 16th Century Dutch and Flemish still life painting and also an homage to the early Victorian practice of staging post-mortem daguerreotypes by capturing images of the newly deceased.

The images have an element of the genres of Vanitas, of Nature Morte and serve as a larger metaphor for the seas and creatures of the natural world.
