Devorah Sperber received a BFA Summa Cum Laude from Regis University in 1987. Prior to that she studied at Colorado Institute of Art.
Sperber is intrigued by the link between art, science, and technology. In her work she explores the way in which our brains prioritize one object over another, thus distorting reality and generating subjective experience.
Her installations may appear at first glance to be random arrangements of spools of thread. But located in front of each one is a clear acrylic sphere, which rotates it by 180 degrees and transforms the spools of thread to one coherent image. The intention is that by imitating the human eye this mechanism expels the idea of one absolute truth.
Sperber is the recipient of two New York Foundation of the Arts sculpture fellowships and a Poeple‘s Choice Award from the Ulrich Museum. Her work has been exhibited worldwide and featured in such publications as Beaux Arts, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and National Post.
