Deborah Pressman

 

 

Statement:

Landscapes and multiple images produced by double and triple image photography are recurrent themes in my work. I am interested in expanding and compressing the depth of field:seeing the micro and the macro world simultaneously. Weather, changing seasons, the profusion of textures and shapes within the natural world are constant sources of wonders and inspiration. My goal is the create a visual experience as though moving through a landscape

My materials include cold wax, oil sticks, inks, and graphite on paper. I use printmaking and rubbing techniques to create multi-layered image.

 

Bio:

In June 2017 I retired after 33 years of practicing medicine. Throughout my medical practice I continued to make art – I took master classes in silversmithing for 8 years with renowned silversmith Michael Banner. More recently, I have taken prolonged workshops with Lisa Pressman (no relation) in encaustic painting, and printmaking workshops with Joyce Silverstone at Zia Mays and Dan Weldon at North Country Studio workshops. I currently participate in a monthly critique group led by Patricia Miranda. I am fully committed to art making- working daily in my studio.
