About Dorothea Eiben
Dorothea Eiben explores her environment to create luminescent color images that have been described as embodying the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi. Her work has focused on capturing the essence of places and objects that have been abandoned as no longer useful -- illuminating the exquisite nature of impermanence. These images evoke the spirits of these objects, allowing them to live on even as our attention turns from the old in favor of the new. Her more recent work extends this exploration of spirit and memory to the natural world.
