Debra Zlotsky

Show ran from 5/2/2000 to 5/27/2000

New Work, painting

Using imagery from historical and contemporary sources, Zlotsky creates eccentric still lifes that confuse the distant past with the immediate present. In her paintings on wood panels, murky, atmospheric spaces reveal theatrical situations between objects and figures. Layers of solvent and varnish erode, crack and submerge the imagery, adding to a sense of passage and transience, and producing a rich, tactile complexity.
