Knee deep in water in the middle of the night, I was inspired by the roundness of the earth and our perception of the horizon line. Part color field painter, part abstractionist and part impressionist, my camera has become my paint brush. "The eye sees clearer in dreams, than the imagination awake". Leonardo da Vinci.
Cheryl Maeder, through her non-traditional experimentation, has developed an identifiable, idiosyncratic and dream-like approach in her work. Maeder utilizes her camera as a precision instrument to replace the traditional tools of an artist’s studio, such as brushes and paint. Maeder focuses her camera instead on the otherworldliness between reality and the abstract. In her anonymous world, faces and bodies seem to melt into the subliminal.
