Statement

Emilie Halpern trades on dissonance and contradiction.  Working in a mix of mediums, from sculpture to photography, conceptualism to found object installation, she looks for ideas and images that play against each other in surprising ways.  Through juxtapositions and combinations of these ideas, Halpern creates thoughtful, new relationships.  Her work is precious and distant, intellectual and emotional, romantic and just a bit magical. 

Emilie Halpern lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Anna Helwing Gallery in Los Angeles.
