Statement:
Rabbitholes and Revelations
- artist statement by AnnMarie Tornabene -

In the last two to three years, I�ve had a number of profound changes occur in my life. Getting married is among these changes, and with that came about a multitude of emotional and psychological discoveries. There has been a fear of losing my identity; self-doubt was surrounding my every move and I started making poor decisions. Fairly rapidly, I felt like I was falling into a deep hole. I needed to get out, so I decided to take time to reflect and try to learn why these things were happening. I took a trip back to my childhood and started a quest to seek out what has happened, what I had and did not have, and what I wanted.
The �Alice�s Adventures in Wonderland� story is a theme that many artists have adapted in their work. As I saw where I was, I, too, made a connection to Alice and that proverbial �rabbit hole.� The story�s inspiration took form into some of my most fantastic and romantic tableaux so far. Since those elements are not unfamiliar to my work, creating this fairy tale imagery was intuitive. I see this series as an abridged version of my life�s journey thus far, with a door open to the next chapter full of new revelations



Vita / Lebenslauf:
AnnMarie Tornabene
Biography (b. 1969 Long Island, New York)


From the beginning of her photography career, AnnMarie gravitated to the portrait over any other subject matter. She chose physically attractive men and women to photograph, wanting to capture their beauty immortally on film, for, as an overweight woman, she wished to possess, in some way, that kind of beauty that was considered ideal by society standards. Upon talking to her subjects, however, she learned that none of them felt confident in their appearance. With this epiphany, she then began photographing her self as she wanted to be seen - as beautiful. Through encouragement by her peers, as well as her, then new, job as an artists' model, a confidence grew within her and the act of photographing herself took precedence.
As time went on, her images began to change direction pointing more inward as she looks to resolve other personal issues in her life. AnnMarie sees herself as multi-faceted, with intertwined layers of emotional and physical beauty and turmoil, sometimes feathering the line of demarcation. Her work is narrative in nature and now, with working with other materials, has begun to push the envelope in how she wants to be perceived.
Her inspirations include the art of the Pre-Raphaelites, Symbolists, and Romanticists, and the photography of Julia Margaret Cameron and Francesca Woodman. Along those, music has also a profound effect on her work - Celtic and New Age music especially.
AnnMarie Tornabene graduated from Long Island University/CW Post in 1998 with a BFA in Photography, magna cum laude. She is an award-winning artist exhibiting and publishing her work internationally, as well as being reviewed in The New York Times, Newsday, other publications and Internet venues. She has been interviewed by women's organizations on the topic of body image in contemporary society. Essays and prose have been written as reactions to her photographs. She is in several collections all over the United States, Canada and the U.K.
