For the past thirty years, Lorna Bieber has been using images appropriated from books and magazines as the starting point for her art. She then reinterprets the source images through a layered process of manipulation that involves enlarging, reducing, cropping, drawing, and collaging. By altering the original photograph, Bieber invites viewers to see the known world in utterly unfamiliar ways.
