Danae Falliers is a conceptual photographer living and working in New Mexico. Her work is composite-based photography, with an emphasis on the fine print. She explores the boundaries between art and design; photography and drawing; realism and abstraction; pop and conceptual; metaphor and representation.
Falliers' is intrigued by ideas of transience, transcendence, and impermanence. Her work explores the co-existence of movement and stillness; a cohabitation of contemplation and restlessness; a formal plane of both flatness and depth. A particular focus in her work is the evolution of the perceived landscape, created in part by the pervasive acceleration of images in modern life, which in turn has exponentially intensified and dulled our cognitive understanding of our environments. The fleeting nature of transition – difficult to grasp but known to our cognitive perceptions – is recognizable to our subconscious, and both implicit and explicit memory.
Falliers' work is included in many public collections including hospitals, hotels, universities, government buildings, law firms, corporations, and foundations. A full list is posted on danae-falliers.com
