Nathaniel—aka Female Pentimento—is a Brooklyn-based artist and musician creating celestial images using a combination of photography, post-production and AI. Their work takes the religious symbolism of their Southern Virginia upbringing and reclaims it, using it to better understand themselves and their place in the world, and to advocate for climate awareness.
