Dee Shapiro captures her subjects in a fun, creative way. She describes her work as follows:
“My practice explores the intersection of pattern with nature, geometry and craft. Images are borrowed and imagined from other cultures and biomorphic forms and expressed through mark making.
As in a dream of alternative realities, absurd connections, or on a trip passing familiar landscapes in unfamiliar settings, new conscious and unconscious associations are brought to a 2-dimensional surface in my work. In the recent pieces, geometry (seen even in the structure of organic forms) directs composition: arbitrary drops of color undermine control and create shapes that succumb to the overwork of drawings, rendering obsessive intricacies and paint application building the forms. Collage material adds extraneous influences in a subtle blend”.
