Vera Kaplan is a Hudson Valley artist who is inspired by European Fauve art of the early 20th century, as well as the art, music, and textile patterns of India, Greece, Italy, and Africa. She adjusts the stylistic elements of her work to fit whichever materials are interesting to experiment with at the current moment.

Some textures are achieved by imbedding and painting on cheesecloth, masking tape, various fabrics, or modeling paste.Any or all of these are glued to canvas and then layered with paint and/or collaged papers. The thought process is a form of waking dream with the canvas as Dreamcatcher.
