The photographs of this New York based artist portray distorted rooms of intoxicating color. In her skillfully, digitally-composed details, she records the history of these places. The resulting effect is that we feel the soul of the room or of the persons living there. Her photographs tell the story of their inhabitants' deeds, dreams and nightmares. Without showing us any people, Venables shows us their traces. The cubistic structure and expressionistic colors in her work integrate the classic modern stylistics in contemporary photography.
