Some say all time exists at once; the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future are regarded as a whole. As always, I am vastly interested in reality, so this cohesion is mesmerizing to me.
After spending the last several years immersed in the past I am ready to embrace the future. But as I set out, the past is with me, transformed. All the losses are still there but there is a brightness forming that allows me to see the entirety, the unity of time and place.
Not considering herself a “photographer” but an image-maker, Ellen Jantzen creates work that bridges the world of photography, prints and collage. As digital cameras began producing excellent resolution, Ellen found her perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technical advancements and creative desire that culminated in her current explorations in photo-inspired art using both a camera to capture imagery and a computer to alter, combine and manipulate the pieces. Her work is shown and published internationally; just recently she was awarded First Prize, Fine Art in the prestigious PX3, Prix de la Photographie Paris for her series “Transplanting Reality; Transcending Nature.”
Ellen is represented by, among others, the Susan Spiritus Gallery in Newport Beach CA and the Bruno David Gallery in St. Louis MO.
