About the Ebook
Artist Sandy Bleifer's personal idiom began with silkscreen, collage and an exploration of paper: a continuing discovery into its complex nature and its ability to serve as a metaphor for the world around us. Early in her career as an exhibiting artist, social and political activism crept into the mix. Soon she began creating art installations that became a focus and galvanizing force for the reconsideration of major historical events: the Holocaust and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In the mid-1990s she focused her attention on a pivotal moment in Los Angeles’ contemporary history: the revitalization of downtown LA. Now in recent years, she is further imbuing her art with a pro-active agenda using interactive installations, video and community engagement with threads that can be seen in her prior aesthetic concerns – paper as a metaphor for life, environment and the human condition.
