About Adrienne Ottenberg
Adrienne Ottenberg is an artist who finds that the places we live in every day are full of meaning and emotion. She hopes to reveal a fresh perspective on the familiar. For this exhibition, Ottenberg worked with watercolor, colored pencil, ink, and digital media, resulting in individual collage prints. The banners are introspective portraits of each figure, inspired by the neighborhood and how it has been mapped.
Ottenberg lives and works in New York City. After years of editorial and book illustration, she found herself creating maps, and pursued an MA in geography to learn computer mapping. She is inspired by historical maps and how we create and bring meaning to the map of our own lives.
