Blending the fantastical with the real, Ms. Freudenthaler's magical drawings articulate the vortex of inner visceral human emotions. Her dream - like forms conjure mystical apparitions which evoke a spellbinding sense of intrigue and fantasy as they metaphorically transcend the distractions of everyday life. Ms. Fre udenthaler's unique artistic vision explores the chimerical interaction of humans' fanciful wonderment with the natural world. Stunning and clever, her subject matter consists of both figurative silhouettes and sublime vistas that are transfigured through the unbridled depths of the imagination where creativity reigns supreme and exhorts fantastical newfound imagery. Employing intricate line work and refined details, her scenes commonly feature elements of earth and sky interconnected in a breathtaking and otherworldly culmination.
