Adele Shtern embraces her calling as a multi-disciplinary artist, using digital and traditional media. She is considered a computer art pioneer. Her artwork is based on a lifetime process of reflecting the synergy and synthesis of personal, cultural and metaphysical realms.
The Digit Dance Series is a pictorial reflection
of daily life, painted with pixels. It is reminiscent
of impressionism, mosaics and cave paintings. Each image was developed by scanning an orig-inal drawing.The Brother Blue Digital Portraits are digital video portrait/landscapes.
Roots are photomontages/collages/paintings layered with text, images and, in some cases, drawings.They integrate different levels of symbolic significance and synthesize visual codes into a deep psychic matrix suggestive of the contemplative mind. Adele's intention is to celebrate the beauty and wealth of life via visual communication.
Currently at the Borough of Manhattan Community College / CUNY, she has been a Professor of Art since receiving her MFA from Yale in 1979. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, and has received many awards. Adele has lived and created art in Long Island City for over 30 years.
