Featured Member Artist: Elaine Langerman

I am fascinated by dreams, fairy tales, mythology and mystical thought.
With my work, I explore the visions I receive through dreams, the subconscious, and intuition. I like to put found objects together to see what happens.

I make work in both 2-and 3-dimensions. I compose, construct, juxtapose and paint. In my quest, I capture images using photographs (my own and others), drawing and painting. I use varying scale systems and points of view, employing image-as-text and text-as-image.

I let these objects, composed of found and fabricated elements, create their own meanings and resonance.
