REVIEW SANTA FE: LIZ ARENBERG: YOU SEE ME by Aline Smithson
One of my favorite portfolios at Review Santa Fe was the project, You See Me, by Liz Arenberg. The prints were sumptuous and her ability to orchestrate light, color, and subject matter resulted in a series that I can’t stop thinking about. You See Me affirms the often difficult connection between sibilings but at the same time is a beautiful tribute to familial bonds, to the recognition of self, using the mirror of each sibling to reflect and celebrate two individuals.
