Rausenberg, Esther

Lives in Vancouver, BC

Artist Statement

Esther Rausenberg is a photo-based artist whose heavily textured landscape images capture the abstract details of her surroundings. These photographs become moody and illusionistic film shots, reminiscent of a past time or an imagined place. Manipulation of these images is achieved through an in-camera double-exposing and cross-processing of film. Rausenberg is actively involved in Vancouver’s artistic community: she has documented work for the Canadian public art group La Raza, has been involved with the Firehall Arts Centre and the Norman Rothstein Theatre, and is currently the Executive Director of the East Side Culture Crawl.
