[DE]COMPOS[ED] by Theresa Ortolani explores systems and boundaries between binaries – text/image, conscious/unconscious, corporeal/spiritual, focusing on the points at which these constructs converge, invert and decompose. These primarily lens-based images were crafted via various techniques: masking, piercing, sewing, drawing, digital imaging and printed in multiple layers. The original images vary in size, medium and technique. The final pieces were included in a handmade, limited edition 7 x 7" 50 plate artist book.

[DE]COMPOS[ED] selected as:
FRESH 2015 Finalist, Klompching Gallery
2015 International Photo Awards 2nd Place, Self-Published Book
2015 International Photo Awards 6 Honorable Mentions: Abstract, Book, Collage, Fine Art, Nude, Still Life
