Omnia Vincit Amor

Love conquers all. So wrote the poet Virgil more than two millennia ago. Art has that power. To transcend time and space and connect with a being far removed from it’s creation. Being a photographer is a way of distinguishing and interpreting the world. Distilling an endless series of moments into an expression of truth, into an image that speaks to someone. In my art the creative atmosphere is this; desiring to translate existence into still frames. To stop time for a moment and look, at this life, at this dream we love so deeply.

About the Artist

Born into the epicenter of the consciousness movement in a house on North Venice Blvd. in Venice Beach, California in 1977 and raised between Los Angeles and the wilderness of the Los Padres National Forest north of the Ojai Valley, Attasalina's art is a fusion of the urban experience and the insights afforded by the natural world.

Focusing on issues of identity, spiritual quests, visionary experiences, disability and inner states as physical relationship with environment, her work is often in the subtle way of a person who has had to keep their life and their knowledge secret.

She began her career in photography in 1999 at the age of twenty-two when a lucky break led to her being hired to manage a photography studio with photo lab and custom darkroom. Enthusiastically accepting every opportunity and advantage that came along, within a short time, she was photographing portraits and events and exhibiting her work.

Attasalina’s exhibitions have been landscape, nude, mixed media and documentary projects. She has been published in the Ojai Valley News, Ventura County Star, Newsweek and the Ojai Calendar Project and shown at the Los Angeles Art Show presented by the Lucie Foundation and The Month of Photography Los Angeles at Bergamot Station. She has presented at Brooks Institute about writing as it relates to visual artists, served as juror for the photography branch of the Ojai Arts Center and collaborated with the Ojai Arts Commission and local organizations, businesses and galleries to establish an arts grant.

After over a decade in photography, Attasalina became disabled due to multiple conditions and could no longer continue her professional career. She officially closed her studio in 2012 and began a long period of severe disability, often bed bound and unable to walk or sit for months and years. In spite of this, she continued her personal work, delving deep into her own life experience and uncovering mysteries to facilitate healing. Greatly recovered, Attasalina is re-emerging with her autobiographical project Freed From Rage and Sorrow.
