In this body of work, artist Emily Kell celebrates the divine feminine. This series explores the multifaceted beauty, power, and mystery of nature, and, in particular, it explores these aspects of womankind. The series envelops themes of metamorphosis, and shows women through an ethereal and otherworldly lense. With this body of work, the artist strives to overcome restrictive modern concepts of female beauty. Throughout the series, the artist explores the spiritual journey of women, and their relationship to the divine. Emily’s growing body of work celebrates the ancient Goddess, and a return to the knowledge that She represents. Using herself and the women in her life as inspiration and as models, Emily creates works that are intended to speak to the entire human family, but also have a personal and intimate element to them. Much of her own personal journey is revealed through her poetry, which is written in a secret language throughout the work.

Tomo Nakayama is a singer/instrumentalist/songwriter/producer from Seattle, Washington. Known for his crystalline high-tenor voice and intricate chamber folk compositions, Tomo’s music has been praised by NPR, New York Times, and KEXP, drawing comparisons to Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, Paul Simon, and Sigur Ros.

Recorded during a residency at Seattle’s Town Hall, Fog On The Lens was co-produced and mixed by Yuuki Matthews (The Shins, David Bazan) and released by Porchlight Records (U.S.) and & Records (Japan). Tomo and Yuuki played an astounding 14 shows in 1 day throughout Seattle for the record’s release, followed by a successful tour of Japan.
