Work by Edie Bresler:
I didn't care for the photos in the "Helping Hands" series at all. In fact, they were so bad, they made me angry. The "stranger participation" thing is so old and tired. The photograms lacked any aesthetic appeal or deep inner meaning. Maybe there's something I'm not getting there, but to me, it stunk of amateur phoning it in at the last minute.
On the other hand, I thought the "Anonymous" series was wildly imaginative and refreshing! I found them both simultaneously aesthetically pleasing and intellectually intriguing. Her playfulness with time, scale, perspective, dimension, medium, color, and technique serve as breadcrumbs leading into her imagined world ripe with curiosity and longing. Her subjects are like fairies playing the role of gate keepers to a tantalizing new world contained deep within our own, only accessible to the most imaginative and withdrawn among us.
It's odd to see two series made by the same artist, created around the same time, draw out such diametrically opposed responses from me. But it happened.
