Danae Falliers was born and raised in Colorado, and has lived and worked in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Mexico, and Texas. She earned an MFA in Photography from the University of Southern California, and a BFA from California College of the Arts in Oakland. She has taught traditional and digital photography at the University of New Mexico, Episcopal High School in Houston, Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Aspen, and Colorado State University.
Danae Falliers has earned two degrees in photography, and embraces the history and technical standards of the medium in her practice. She also acknowledges 20 and 21st century painters as important influence, including the work of Gerhard Richter, Bridget Riley, Ed Ruscha and Brice Marden.
Falliers’ work took a significant turn toward a hybrid approach to photography in 2005. She's interested in the borderline between photography and drawing; moving and still; pop and traditional; handmade and fabricated; ephemeral and material: psychological and spiritual; fixed and limitless; abstract and representational; potentiality and stasis. She is intrigued by ideas of transience, transcendence, permanence, and memory. The images in her latest works are reductive, composited, manipulated, and abstracted. Falliers explores the evolution of the perceived landscape, created in part by the pervasive acceleration of images. Her process is rhythmic, repetitive, and exacting.
