The Light Under the Door - Tsar Fedorsky at NESOP through March 18th

Tsar Fedorsky’s The Light Under the Door is a serious and tender investigation into the question of personal fulfillment as she reflects on the choices she’s made in her own life. The photographs reveal hope, longing, and at times perhaps even disappointment.
What constitutes true happiness? About which the artist says:

“I wanted to create a photo narrative about a woman who dreams of a larger life. Comfortable at home, she also yearns to experience the broader world. But at times, she feels lonely and isolated, and seeks comfort in art, literature, and in her imagination. The black and white photographs allow the viewer to move beyond realism and toward abstraction, linking concrete objects to imaginary ones. The light represents her desire to break free from the shadows she finds herself in. “

The contemplative nature of Fedorsky’s work quietly disarms and confronts the viewer, leaving him with same questions she herself has bravely undertaken. A show not to be missed!

Tsar Fedorsky holds a B.A. from Amherst College and an M.F.A. from Hartford Art School. Over the last twenty years her work has been widely exhibited throughout New England and New York City and has been published in Shots Magazine and Fraction Magazine. She was a 2015 Critical Mass Finalist and has taught at Salem State College as well as abroad. She resides in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
