Statement

Elle Schorr’s works may look like photo collages, but they are always single photographs, capturing, in a split second, her unique, conflicting and overlapping impressions of our fast paced contemporary world, with all its sounds, contradictions and confusion.

Starting with reflective surfaces as her canvas, Schorr employs a palette of color, light and shadow to fashion complex, multi-dimensional dreamscapes. Fragments of architecture, people, traffic, signs, mannequins and random objects combine to form narratives about past and present, fantasy and reality.

Schorr’s work is informed by lifelong passions for contemporary art, architecture and photography. A native of New York City, she returns often to explore and photograph its many neighborhoods. She also seeks its counterparts in the more laid back cities and towns of South Florida.
