A statement by the artist describes her inspiration and approach:
"The central theme of my work as an artist has always been the human figure. When carefully observed the body is but a thin shield, a permeable membrane that can obscure but not obliterate the psychological and spiritual dimensions of each person.
In my portraits I strive to portray what the sitter is behind the facade of personality. In a holographic portrait the artist and the sitter are, for brief moments, surrounded by laser light, a light since 1960, never before seen in our planet. This special event often allows for an opening into a person's deep being, recorded for 20 nanoseconds on the holographic plate. William James wrote: 'All around us lie infinite worlds, separated only by the thinnest veils.' In my new series I combine different exposures of the figure to explore the human longing for integration in the psychic and spiritual realms that release us into a state unlimited by boundaries."
The Fischbach Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 to 5:30.
