Deanna Sirlin was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently has a studio outside of Atlanta. As a painter who works in multiple mediums and creates site works, commissions, and projects she passionately blends many disciplines in her work. Her work is a playful abstraction of forms that become eyes, mouths, planets and other curvilinear signs and shapes.
Sirlin’s manner and method are unique in that she approaches her subject as a chronicler of an imagined universe and its inhabitants: “When I am making a painting, the work has a particular pleasure of being which articulates itself in color, form and composition. These circles, eyes, planets dance around the surface. They float up and down, have small conversations, and an occasional epiphany.”
