About the exhibition

Higher self is a photo based mix media self portraiture exploration. At the base, Salome El uses themselves to create narratives encompassed in wax to explore their dealings with depression and general state of being. This body of work marks a crossover for them, as they are moving into a spiritual route dabbling in higher self concepts.

Salome’s exhibition is on view from November 9th, 2022 – February 6th, 2023

About the artist

Hailing from Atlanta, GA but in the Bay long enough to call it their home, Salome El is an artist with a background in photography who primarily shoots self portraiture. Their portraits mixed with wax symbolize their past battles with depression and are slowly moving towards spiritual themes. An introvert by nature, they can be found at home with their new kitten.
