Erica Rosenfeld uses glass as the primary material while combining it with light, paint, found objects, food, and other mixed media. This hybrid artistic practice has centered on sculptural and social aspects of glass, food-making, and performance. Her current body of work, “Reverie Forest: Sanctuary for Strange Creatures,” explores Post-War Era America’s culture of conformity, othering, mass culture, and mass fear. The focus is on the mid-century “Paint by Numbers” phenomenon: it sees them as cultural artifacts, a view of them as windows into the culture in America at the time in the early 1950s when they were popular. They speak of a mindless conformity which consumed national life at the time, a culture infested with a fear of not “staying in the lines,” instilling a need to find safety and order.
