September artist

Arni Adler is a self-taught artist in drawing, collage, painting and small 3-D found wood works. Her pieces develop organically, starting with a color, a shape or texture, and growing into something unpredictable. Her figures operate similarly to dream imagery: pointing to current states of mind or situations. The figures also seem akin to those in fairy tales or myths: appearing as animals, or part animals/part human, and other imaginary creatures. She is most interested in emotional truth in art, art that represents hidden states of reality, not accessed by other means.
