Born and raised New Yorker, Elizabeth Kahane, began a life long passion for photography at the age of 17, when handed a Pentax 35 millimeter camera as a gift. Self- taught, camera at her side, Ms. Kahane is instinctively aware of the light.
While Elizabeth Kahane delighted her viewers with photos of NYC in her first show, the new exhibit treats them to something far more wild: an African safari in not only two, but three dimensions. E. A. Kahane explains, “I saw The 1/4 Mile by Robert Rauschenberg at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art last February and I was blown away. I couldn’t wait to go home, gather up my images and make silkscreens with them. Suddenly, I was inspired to do so much more with my photographs than simply put them in a square frame. I began to fabricate sculptural pieces using my images, to experiment with dimensional printing, and even to design wallpaper. The title Off The Wall grew out of this multifaceted approach to my art.”
