About Natasha Bacca

Bend, OR

Natasha's artwork explores light, combining contemporary and archaic processes to push the bounds of conventional photography. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is featured in private, public, and corporate collections. Collectors of her work include NASA, Hilton Hotels, Kaiser Permanente, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, Lane Community College, Central Oregon Community College, and many more.

In 2010, Natasha was selected as the Jubelale artist for Deschutes Brewery. In November 2010, Oregon Public Broadcasting featured her process and artworks on the Emmy award winning television series Oregon Art Beat. In January 2011, she was granted a US patent for the process by which she creates her art.

Creating unique camera-less art in a darkroom she revisit the wonder of photography's invention and process. Merging current technologies with deep-rooted photographic practices, she uses light emitting devices to brush color into form across light-sensitive paper. A unique approach to the production of photographic art, she does not document an existing image but rather, like a painter, generates an original one. Manipulating color, intensity, and direction of light, she literally paints with light. No negative, enlarger, camera or computer is used in the creating of her art, making each piece produced a unique work.
