Natalie Girsberger takes us behind the scenes of fashion runways giving us a transgressive look at models, often suffering to fit the molds required by their profession. These photographs may be cautionary tales, alerting young women that success may not be down these avenues. And so the Transgressive genre in all media–once one gets past the initial shock–has an underlying need to instruct. The shock technique gets our attention.
The photos titled Passing Shadow and Industry Standards see the fashion industry through a critical lens.
How far will women go, participating in a society obsessed with creating a pretty picture?
Body measurements, models–who are often young girls– miserable, as they rise and fall on the ever changing fashion scene. Their features fit beauty standards for such a very limited period of time. Passing Shadow asks the viewer to question the real essence of the pretty surface and to become aware of the suffering the model goes through to look this thin.
As the photographer, Natalie Girsberger describes—“Industry Standards shows a girl that’s clearly beautiful, but she is just skin and bones. She is freezing in her perfectly styled outfit and the hard light emphasises her skeleton-like appearance. This images shows how there’s a fine line between beauty and sickness in this business that treats its starving models like shiny objects.”
Mental illness also a theme of the Transgressive genre. In Natalie’s “Shine on Crazy Diamond” series, she thematizes mental illness, schizophrenia in particular.

IndieWalls is automated art consulting. It’s a site for artists to easily pitch their art, with one click, to hotel and residential projects actively seeking artworks for their walls.
This site is a huge time-saver for artists to reach out to new markets!
To get started–Create your artist account on IndieWalls and upload images of your art. You can now review current project actively seeking artworks and send them your pitch!
Plus, when new projects seeking artwork are added to the site, you will receive an email notification that they are accepting pitches.
Once you find a project you are interested in. Review the project specifications and photos to help determine what you will offer them in your Pitch.
It’s super easy to see, at a glance, what artworks the project is seeking. For instance, the hotel project Gild Hall is currently seeking colorful, edgy work– their wants clearly tagged like this:
You have artworks to fit their needs, so now you want to create your pitch.
It is fast and automated. You simply click on the word *Pitch* that appears on each of your artwork thumbnail images. A box appears that allows you to write your text and add more images–such as detail shots, or wall installation views of your art. You can pitch that particular artwork, with retail price, or you can offer commissions.
Then click send. Your pitch goes to the project and your artwork appears on the project selection page–so project administrators will be sure to see it.
It’s that easy!
Another project currently active on IndieWalls–the Beechwood Residential building, under construction, lists their color pallet as teal, sage, green, mustard/gold, beige, light grays, medium gray and charcoal. They want Abstract, Architectural, Black and White, Classic and Geometric artworks for their lobby and corridors.
This essentially is all you need to know to pitch a series of your fine art photographs for their corridors, or offer a commission of large scale geometric paintings for their lobby. Create and send in your pitch to them for consideration. Time spent creating your pitch on IndieWalls in minimal and could lead to a sale or commission.

Artist Nina Hellman was born in New York City and grew up there. She attended the well-known High School of Performing Arts, School of Visual Arts, and the Art Students League. Nina traveled throughout Europe and North Africa, living as an expatriate in Denmark for four years, and exhibiting in art galleries in Copenhagen.
Since the 1980’s, Nina has had solo exhibition in well-known New York art galleries, and exhibited in several group shows with Ceres Gallery, a New York non-profit alternative cultural center dedicated to promoting women in the arts.
Nina Hellman is an artist and has also been an Art Therapist for over thirty years. All these rich and varied experiences “cross-fertilize” according to the artist, interacting in the mixed media paintings the artist creates incorporating collage elements.
Her paintings of sleeping cats and humans adrift in rich environments alluding to both the physical and the world of dreams.
Nina Hellman offers her available paintings, sculpture portraits, and prints on her website ninahellman.com
There are many mockup products, aka scene generators, that artists may find useful–such as poster mockups, greeting card mockups, product mockups for showing your art on various products and on a variety of items. Mockups may be used in presentations, on your website, and in your marketing and promotions. I’m learning more about what mockups are readily available. As I find useful mockup, I will be reviewing and sharing them in future articles.
Today, I’m sharing Get Scenery because the site is super easy to use. Get Scenery mockups allow you to test-out your images before purchasing. With their free watermarked mockups, like I’m using here, I am able to demonstrate how artists can easily read my ebook on the go.
So I’m able work on and try out a variety promotional plans and ideas before deciding on which mockups to actually purchase. Purchased versions do not have watermarks.
To try out the watermarked mockups, go to the Get Scenery site, download the mockups and then with one click you add your own photo to try in each–as I have here. Trying these have given me new ideas and a better understanding of how I might use these mockups in my product promotions.
For instance, if you have a catalog or portfolio of your fine art photography prints or a series of fine art prints that you’d like Art Consultants and Interior Designers to know about. You could use a mockup of an iPad or iPhone on your website to quickly show how easy it is for an Art Consultant or Interior Designer to view your prints while they are on-sight in the space where the prints will hang.
Try out your products to select the best options, then purchase usable versions with no watermarks at reasonable prices. Showcase your designs with premium mockup templates from getscenery.com

Artist Metrov has honored me by adding my face to his P.O.P., People of Pax portrait series. It’s nice that he wanted to include me. I’ve written about his portrait series in two previous articles–one for Xposy multimedia magazine– titled Metrov’s People of Pax which you can read here. Also, I’ve published news of how you can participate by having Metrov do your portrait here.
By coincidence, I am in the middle of being interviewed by a magazine, and, if the editor decides to use the interview, will request a photo of me. So I am considering something out-of-the-ordinary by sending my Pax portrait to appear with my interview!
The photograph that Metrov used as the basis of my Pax portrait was taken in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco by photographer Amoreena. (There was a some sun that day so there are some shadows and so I am squinting.)

Facebook– that ever-changing social media platform– has announced that it’s ready to make more overall changes, admitting that this scheduled new formatting could negatively affect your Page’s reach.
So, if you created your artist page, or small business page on Facebook, and have even paid for Facebook ads that brought “Likes” to your page, will all that fade into the background along with your page? Has developing your Facebook page been worthwhile for your business? Or is it time to shift your focus to new ways of getting visibility?
For some time, I’ve advised artists that Facebook ads bring “Likes” not sales. When you pay for any ad it will drive some traffic. But as soon as you stop paying for those ads, they disappears and are forgotten.

Review the portfolio of artist Graham Edward Rhodes and you will find complex ink drawings, as if we are down on our hands and knees for a look into the microcosm in shadows and charred rubble, then look up at a distant vivid scene of chaos in the thermal-nuclear red of his painting of a post dystopian-like urban landscape.
Next we stumble upon the soothing Green Washed and still further on the horizon to what could be a rain storm over a turbulent sea

After a long winter we’re all looking forward to warmer days ahead. These watercolor paintings remind us of the coming spring and summer weather and may even have you looking forward to sun and a rest in the cool shade of your porch — real or wished for!
“These paintings re-capture memories from my youth. They are places from around my hometown that are nostalgic and quintessential to Vermont. I painted them to evoke a quiet time in one’s life where we can appreciate all that is good and soak it in. I hope the viewer is left with a feeling of warmth and peace.” Kathleen Berry Bergeron
