About

The Deflated World, 1981 Cibachrome, this is the rare AP (Artists Proof) outside the edition of 10 20 × 24 in 50.8 × 61 cm Eve Sonneman (born in Chicago on 1946) is an American woman photographer and artist. She did a series of similar sequences in color and black and white and for diptychs. She was included in the show EYE OF THE BEHOLDER Photographs from the Avon Collection The exhibition addressed the diverse and changing concepts of beauty as expressed by women through photography. It included such masters of the form as Berenice Abbott, Marina Abramovic, Ellen Carey, Lotte Jacobi, Barbara Kasten, Sally Mann, Sheila Metzner, Cindy Sherman, Sandy Skoglund, Deborah Turbeville, and Carrie Mae Weems to name a few. Since the start of her career in the Young Photographers exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1971, Eve Sonneman has secured a unique position for herself in the world of contemporary art. Internationally renowned as a photographer, she has participated in the 1977 Documenta and in the biennales of Venice, Paris, Strasbourg, and Australia, has published five books, and has been the subject of 77 solo exhibitions. David Shapiro, "She is a painterly photographer [who] reminds us that photography, as with Man Ray and Rodchenko, must never be denigrated as mere materiality." In addition to her career in photography, Sonneman works in paint, making large abstractions, painting watercolors and objects. Her distinctive, highly personal form of pointillism has been acutely characterized by the critic Klaus Kertess as "teeming with tiny, obsessively made, evanescent rings congealing into a delicate and fugitive, floreate dew."
