Enid Braun has shown in New York and San Francisco and had a solo exhibit at Dresdner
Bank in Germany.

The idea of “place” is central to my work. My images of the City are familiar places of my
everyday life, in which my physical perspective within the space is a defining element. About
to descend subway steps, passing a building entranceway at night and being halfway across
a street are all “places” for me. My work tries to hold onto what is usually a fleeting
awareness of perspective in both senses of the word, as a physical pictorial tool and an
individual vantage point. For The Tile Project my rather large scale paintings
were transferred into a small format using new digital technology, some
tiles being full images of paintings and some details. These small
pieces of New York City join other small pieces of places around the
world to make the statement that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts.
