Aileen Bassis

My art practice is content driven, by this I mean that there are particular areas such as social histories, the Holocaust, issues of identity, immigration, income inequality, racial disparities, etc, that I explore through making art. My process begins with a subject and the forms of my work can vary, but is usually some kind of work on paper. My work is primarily based in photography, and I use my photos to make transfer prints, lithographs, etchings and artists books that combine one or more print techniques. The images are often rather ordinary, but the organization, the combination of images, inclusion of text or additional art media shapes the interpretation. I’m interested in providing the viewer with the opportunity to reflect, review and re-examine the world around us.
