Tina Gutierrez - Photographer
Tina’s practice is grounded in her study of art, movement and music. She is a longtime student of Developmental Movement, including Feldenkreis and Alexander technique, and very deliberately composes the human figure and its activity. Tina is also a musician. She performs widely on the lute and Renaissance flute, and directs the early music chamber group, The Shakespeare Band. Her cultural connection to the Renaissance/Baroque period extends to The Visual world as well as music, especially sculpture. Depicting classical balance and beauty in the human form is a hallmark of Tina’s work.
When not composing scenes in the studio or on-site, Tina is a freelance photographer with a broad clientele including The Cincinnati Symphony, Linton Chamber Music, Movers and Makers Magazine, Queen City Chamber Opera, Concert Nova, MYCincinnati, UC-College Conservatory of Music, and Procter and Gamble. She has photographed many Grammy award winning musicians.
Tina’s work has been widely exhibited, at FotoFocus 2016 at The Cincinnati YWCA, Washington Park Art Gallery, Kennedy Heights arts Center, The Art Academy, Xavier University and other spaces.
Tina’s early life was spent growing up in the antique business. Her Cuban/Appalachian heritage had a big part in her family choosing to work with antiquities from other cultures including South American and African tribal arts. She later worked in fashion as well as being a musician. Her antiques background and later work in fashion drew her immediately to the work of Da’Mon Butler. His bold modern statements in Fashion and Accessories are new and original yet authentic to Ancestral adornments. Tina teaches Photography thru Public libraries and as a Adjunct professor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Her other photography projects include underwater ballet and othe types of Dance.
Photographing this project “re-Adorned” was a two year-long journey in exploring movement, fashion and authenticity. For more information on Tina see her website
