Deanna Sirlin, Walking, 2019 Installation at Alpharetta Arts Center , Georgia 139 x 414 inches
February 23 – April 26, 2019
Alpharetta Arts Center
Variation, an exhibition of new works by Deanna Sirlin, features 16 of her new works, including mixed media collages that incorporate both traditional art materials and pieces of her own works alongside elements of recycled and found objects, a site-specific large-scale window installation created for the gallery, and paintings on canvas. Sirlin is well-known as a pioneer of using digitally printed transparent materials as a vehicle for her intensely colored abstract imagery. She has completed eight such installations around the world. Sirlin will also present a video work that she made in collaboration with New York artist Matthew Ostrowski who is a well-known composer and electronic artist.
She’s Got What It Takes
American Women Artists in Dialogue
is a critical yet intimate look at the lives and work of nine noted American women artists who have been personally important to artist and author Deanna Sirlin. Having followed and drawn inspiration from their work for over
thirty years, Sirlin decided to visit and talk with each of these artists in their studios; her goal was to find out how these women think about making art, how they view their place in history, and what it means to be a woman artist today. In documenting these meetings, this book captures the continuing vitality of a group of women who have committed their lives to their respective artistic visions. It also conveys the deep sense of kinship Sirlin has come to feel with them, and the way these encounters have added meaning to her own sense of herself as an artist.
