With an MFA from Pratt Institute and teaching positions at Rochester Institute of Technology, Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC, and Manhattan Marymount College, Ms. Brandeis has travelled the world, seeking images to incorporate into her visual thoughts and dialogues.
Along with a book she authored, Color Processing and Printing for Prentice Hall, numerous accomplishments and awards validate her expertise, including multiple IPA, Luci awards, PX3 Prix de la Photographie, WPGA Awards, Society for Education Juror’s Award, upon which selected works were exhibited at the Center for Fine Art Photography.
Brandeis was chosen by the guest curator as Best Narrative image at Guild Hall 2012. You will find her work in ‘The Best Photographers, 2013 and 2015 , 2017, produced by Graphis Publications. Her work has traveled to multiple national and international exhibitions. Concerned with the maintaining archival quality and print longevity she personally prints on uncoated all rag Exhibition Paper, or handmade Japanese Kozo Paper.
This work is part of the ongoing series The Landscape of Memory.
By combining both realism with the many techniques favored by the surrealists, including the alteration of space, perspective, tonality, focus, manipulation, the content of the image is then open to the viewer's personal interpretation. Memories are visceral, they are not dependent upon a strict visualization of an event or a scene recreation. Rather, they often surface, sometimes unexpectedly, triggered by visual clues, sounds, smells, which serve to remind us of an experience, a feeling or component of life.
This manipulation of visual space, is defined with the intent of creating a sense of unreality, to provoke the viewer to perceive these altered perspectives of life differently. Within the picture plane anything is possible. It becomes like a window; and in our minds, to see briefly or reflect upon.
i paint horses for love, for the love of a
friend who lives in the South. It is this
labor of love that i find i out do myself.
in going beyond my preconceived
notions i have created a body of work
that hangs together so to speak.
it is harrowing at times, i have lost many
good pieces in the process-yet with each
journey i learn to allow myself to
leave the studio let the
image dry to wait for another time, have coffee, get into HG or
start a new canvas.
the one idea i wish to express is i believe
with no uncertain terms, that when i ask for help from The Gods i undoubtedly
receive divine intervention to create to
the best of my ability good works.
