Reed College's Cooley Gallery presents Lorna Bieber, Image Myths
Long before photoshop's ubiquity, Bieber has been reinterpreting genre style found images using any means available. She produces her images through; collage, paint, copier and computers, as well as traditional and non-traditional photographic techniques. She describes this as altering the "root" picture to create new "branches" whose archetypal narratives are completely changed from the original, yet due to their sources and treatment appear as a kind of memory. Carl Jung's collective unconscious comes to mind, except Bieber is the archetypal intermediary and filter here.
Bieber's work has been exhibited or collected by; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fogg Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, LA County Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and PS 1.
