"I attempt to interpret the essence of nature through digital collage. My art explores chaos/order; design/fine art; complexity/simplicity. I hope to solve the dichotomy of diversity versus exclusivity through emotional balance expressed within art."
"A line is a dot that went for a walk." - Paul Klee
Emerging artist Alice Shapiro (b.1946-) graduated from SUNY Farmingdale and studied Fine Studio Art at Hunter College with Robert Huot. While at Hunter, Shapiro was chosen for a student show at the Hunter Gallery by sculptor Donald Lipski. Shapiro received an Air France Art Award, the Biafarin Art Award, and was accepted into the smART Kinston art residency program 2022-23. Recent group exhibitions include Hong Kong, Canada and Greece. Select acquisitions and collections include Regents Bank, Discovery Insurance, and Museum of History and Art, Georgia. Shapiro began her art career as a portraitist in pastels, oils and acrylics, and found digital creation to be a life-changing creative direction in 2019. Shapiro's influences are Cubism, Surrealism, Bauhaus, the Collagists, Pop Art, and Installation.
These following 5 x 7" digital collage works are soon being published in a virtual multimedia book celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Picasso's death.
