Sandi Haber Fifield: As Birdsongs Emerge | The Certainty of Nothing
April 15 – May 28, 2021

Opening Reception and Book Signing: Saturday, April 17, 12 – 6pm

“In As Birdsongs Emerge, Haber Fifield expands upon the idea of the artist as an architect of nature. Recording and distilling her experiences through the camera lens, the photographs serve as the starting point for her studio process in which she begins to alter the images, cutting them into geometric and organic shapes, then reassembling them in playful, overlapping layers to transform the representation of the perceivable world while pushing the expressive boundaries of the medium. The compositions offer segments and shards of recognizable signifiers – palm fronds, cactus buds, rose bushes – that are spliced, layered, and abstracted into arrangements and associations that slow down the act of looking. Haber Fifield exploits the tension between the plane of the cut photograph and the three-dimensional depth of the imagery, expanding the photographic space while creating multiple points of entry. The viewer is challenged to use their eyes, mind, and memories to navigate the picture plane and question the strata of seeing.”
