November 30, 2012 – January 12, 2013 Gracie R. Cavnar Gallery

Instead of sketchbooks, Jane Eifler has always kept notebooks filled with collages made primarily while traveling on long car trips, at home watching movies and during her free time. Using items from catalogs and magazine including photographs of consumer goods, Eifler cuts abstract fragments and arranges them into diaristic compositions, referencing the time and place when they were created, often serving as a snapshot of an imagined environment. For her exhibition at Lawndale, Eifler presents these collages in larger, human-scale formats for the viewer to imagine as an entrance into these environments.
