BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

At a moment when many artists pursue increa singly theoretical work employing complex media and technology\, Terry B raunstein agilely demonstrates how it is possible to create contemporar y work that utilizes sophisticated digital technology and is simultaneously highly personal. Through the use of collage techniques combined with photo graphic manipulation\, Braunstein creates fictionalized landscapes where on e may encounter dinosaurs in a tropical forest wandering with modern day fo lks from Miami Beach or see a woman in house attire busily sweeping the int erminable floor of a vast desert\, (Empty Nest). In her installatio n Garbage Can Man from the Time Bound series\, a man in midl ife with his leg in a trash can looks beyond his gate to a limited future.

\n

These works\, whether in book form\, sculp ture\, photographs or installation\, emerge from the annals of the daily li fe of the artist\, while serving as signposts to the viewer signaling the i mportance of human consciousness. With its depictions of mundane human acti vity\, set in fictive surroundings\, Braunstein's art explores the relation ship of the everyday and the unfathomable. The work is whimsical\, imaginat ive and sublime.

\n

Braunstein who lives in L ong Beach\, California\, is a poignant raconteur and commentator\, creating books\, sculptural works\, public art pieces and gallery installations\, n early always derived from her own personal experience. In these works\, tim e and space are compressed while images made exclusively from cutouts of th e everyday\, are rearranged into fantastic settings. Her studio is both ima ge archive and laboratory. These intimate artworks address human issues of coming of age\, life and death\, birth\, loss and search for meaning.

\n

Additionally\, Braunstein has produced a number of large-scale public art pieces in venues ranging from libraries and healt h centers to Metro stations and department store windows on Wilshire Boulev ard. She has exhibited her work internationally and has been the recipient of multiple awards including the Durfee Foundation Award that helps make th is exhibition possible\, the NEA Visual Arts Fellowship and the National Mu seum of Women in the Arts\, National Book Award.
