Eranah Adorjan (1981, Cleveland, Ohio, United States) makes paintings, drawings, sculptures and mixed media art. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, Eranah often creates whimsical and playful work, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested.
Her paintings feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections. Her knack for combining unrelated elements leads to surprising analogies. By manipulating the viewer into a state of quizzical confusion, she creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
Her works reference recognizable forms and symbols through collage and drawing which are most often embedded in a matrix of abstraction. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, she formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which are supposedly private, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds, are frequently revealed as assemblages. Again and again, the viewer is orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts.
