I am not striving for an ideal in my work, nor am I advocating a return to the past. My work is a neutral expression of how things currently are. I paint the new organic of regulated flows and organized chaos, where what is "human" or "natural" is increasingly systematized and mechanized.  -Dee Glazer 2012

Her collection of artwork is masterful. Very creative, colorful and rhythmatic. New age surrealism? Anywho, these piece are must see, and, oh yeah... for sale! Got to see these.

 

"My favorite place to draw is in front of the television. For me, drawing is an obsession similar to the act of binge watching. When I make images, I feel like I am connecting and disconnecting myself from the world around me. My compulsion to make things is an outlet, and unlike my compulsion to watch TV, a seemingly more productive one...

Working with wood, gesso, ink, and latex paint, I create drawings and paintings that depict my relationship to contemporary technology. I also explore a more universal, or 'everyman,' response to the means of communication and distraction that overwhelm and intertwine with our everyday lives.

The work is celebratory and simultaneously records the dissent into the information age of ever-growing technological dependency. I find the work to be comedic and horrible at the same time, a sort of modest monument to the average consumer.

These concepts, as well as my drive to make art, are linked to my background in philosophy. Making art allows me to play with these notions in a more abstract manner, allowing for the free play of associations and the transformations of subtle details. Drawing allows me to express ideas that I do not yet have the words for."
