Deborah Oropallo I September 28, 2019
Deborah Oropallo is a painter and video artist, working with web-based imagery and digital media. She incorporates her own photography in addition to digital media to craft highly intricate and layered works, which conflate history, symbolic meaning, and gender. “I use the computer as the tool, but painting is the language of deliberation that is running through my head,” she explains. “I do not want to just repaint an illustration of what the computer can do, but to push the pixels themselves as paint, and to layer imagery and veils to create depth and volume.'“ Oropallo invites SEE(d) to her studio and family farm where she will share her latest videos and 2-dimensional artworks and her spouse will sample his hand-crafted cheese. Lots of delicious boutique wines will be served. Get your tickets for you + 1.
