Carne Vale“She consults the sacred texts of fairy tales and the oral tradition of folklore, interpreting and reinterpreting them through the techniques of ‘found art’ in a new translation of the primordial language of myth. Her work utilizes leaves and bones, shells and stones, the wings of dragonflies—the stuff of dreams—in an iconic retelling of the old traditions as seen through the shattered lens of modernity.

Erzebet’s writing is based in the inherent connection between word and image: as she draws her inspiration from the world around her, and its inspiration of our dreams of Faerie, so too does she return it to the world with her poems and stories, crafting a narrative of the fantastic that transcends genre distinctions.” — Dr. Helen Pilinovsky
