“Barbara Able's new body of work, Transparent, is inspired by her childhood fascination with her grandmother's stereoscope. The stereoscope is a device by which two photographs of the same object taken at slightly different angles are viewed together, creating an impression of depth. Able constructs her new collages with two layers: the top layer of images is on transparent film, which allows the viewer to see the images below them as well.

​Colorful acrylic and oil paintings explore the effects of translucent boxes on Able's imagery, including reflections of viewers as they peer inside. Night scenes are created using luminous lights, which cast colored shadows on the images below.”
