Through her new series “Among the Stars,” Angela Faris Belt explores the infinite by adding the scans of the ashes from loss with open source NASA and other satellite images.
Angela Faris Belt is a visual artist whose work studies relationships between humankind and the more-than-human world. Influenced by nature writers, a unique multi-cultural heritage, Buddhist philosophy, and a lifetime spent in nature, she uses photographic media because its physical makeup mirrors nature itself — sensitivity to light, energy and time, metallic and chemical interactions, viability and expiration — and its inherent ability to simultaneously record and infer. Her work utilizes the entire range of photographic media from historic to digital; media is chosen to underscore or mirror the concepts regarding nature in each body of work.
Angela’s work has been widely exhibited in prestigious juried and invitational exhibitions including Corden/Potts Gallery, San Francisco; BJ Spoke Gallery, NY; Arvada Center for the Arts, CO; The Dairy Center for the Arts, Boulder, CO; Foreman Gallery, NY; and University of Notre Dame’s Photography Gallery. Her work is held in collections including Kaiser Permanente, Reynolds & Reynolds, the Crowne Collection, Chicago; and the Smithsonian Museum. She is represented by Michael Warren Contemporary Gallery in Denver.
Angela lives in the mountains of Colorado’s Front Range, alongside neighbors of elk, deer, fox, coyotes, bears, and mountain lions. In addition to her artwork, she is Program Chair of the Studio Art & Art History Departments at Arapahoe Community College. In her off-time she builds stone walls and participates in bark-beetle mitigation efforts.
