Deborah White

Artist Statement

My paintings are about connections. Connecting in a unique and personal way with a place or an event. I try to convey the essence of a place through color, form and texture. Incorporating pieces of newspapers or other printed materials collected during my travels adds concreteness and a touchable authenticity to the work.

I enjoy intertwining texture and many layers within a painting. It is only when these layers feel completely interwoven and connected, that the painting is complete.

Artist Bio

A successful career in Chicago, first as a graphic designer, then as an advertising art director, has given me the opportunity to travel extensively. I’m still stunned by the impact these experiences have had on my perspective of the world. The tremendous modern art in the museums and galleries visited in Spain especially, gave me an overwhelming urge to finally express myself as a painter. The abstract expressionist approach my work takes, greatly influenced by Spanish artists, gives me the freedom to explore an idea on many levels simultaneously.

The modern world allows one to share common interests with a global community in a way not possible in the past. Through my involvement with an internet group that has its common ground in the band The Rolling Stones, I have not only traveled to places I might not have ever thought of going, but while there, have been able to meet people who live in these places and gain a clearer understanding of the world through this personal contact. This connectivity and commonality among people all over the world, is what my paintings celebrate.
