Sara Fleiszig is an experimental fine art photographer and “The Girl Who Soaks Her Prints.”
In her recent body of work Soaked, Fleiszig’s organic process involves interacting with the subject, colour, and form and exploring the relationship between femininity and liquidity.
A graduate of Sheridan’s Bachelor of Photography program, she is an artist who follows her own intuition, constantly exploring and experimenting with different liquids and soaking methods using female bodily fluids like blood, sweat, urine, and tears.
Most impressive is Fleiszig’s ability to harmonize the initial photograph with layer upon layer of colour while losing edges and pulling areas together using bold value changes of light and dark, outlined magnificently by soft lines.
On this episode of Bonn Park, Fleiszig sits down with Sara Geidlinger and Marshall Ward to discuss her automatic and responsive soaking process, imagery and abstract interpretation, and the subtle art of suggesting quietness, power, and confidence.
