Although the artificial compositions that Lorna Bieber creates do not exist in our world, they form images that reside in the depths of our collective consciousness.

Since the 1980s she has been reinterpreting and reinvigorating a variety of generic found images ranging from sled dogs to pastoral landscapes to office and residential interiors. Her complex, many layered method of production includes: collage, paint, copier and computer technology, as well as traditional and non-traditional photographic techniques. By altering the “root” picture in these ways, Bieber creates new “branches” whose archetypal narratives are utterly different from the original, bringing the observer to see the known world in dramatically unexpected ways.

The monumentality of her mural prints and multi-part montage installations helps to immerse the viewer in this parallel world of memory, dreams and nostalgia.

Lorna Bieber’s work is included in numerous collections such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bibliothèque nationale de France, The Fogg Art Museum and Neuberger and Berman.

Exhibitions of her work have been presented at the Fogg Art Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; LA County Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum of Art and PS 1.

Ms. Bieber’s grants and fellowships include: The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Study and Conference Center; The Camargo Foundation; The MacDowell Colony and Yaddo.
