Found Art: Out of the Ordinary

ONETIME ART DIRECTOR and online designer Leah Giberson now creates art of a more tangible sort. She hunts for photographs of suburban scenes — homes, cars, pools — and mounts them on wood panels; then she enhances these images with layers of acrylic paint.

The results are hauntingly dreamlike views of everyday life. “The photograph is the starting point,” says the Brookline-based artist. “But the story continues and evolves as you move around the piece.”

Original paintings, $400–$1,200; Prints, $35–$75; available at
