Deborah Bigeleisen, “Big White Rose”

 

Deborah earned her degree in textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and founded her own global print design company in Manhattan. After moving to Florida, she was eager to learn oil painting, “the medium of the Masters”. Early in her career, Deborah was represented by a local gallery where she painted beautiful roses using the techniques of the Dutch masters. Awed by the beauty, complexity and mystery of flowers, she continues to follow her passion.

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Deborah Bigeleisen, “Energy”

 

 

Deborah’s discovery of fractals, the self-similar properties found within a single object of nature when viewed hundreds of times at different magnifications, has given rise to a whole new shift in her work to colorful abstract paintings. She plays warm hues against cool hues, working with a palette of up to eight colors and achieving an astonishing richness and depth in dark areas and luminosity in the highlights. She focuses on the movement, the energy in her brushwork, the color relationships and applies up to 20 coats of richly layered transparencies to each piece.

Deborah tells us, “In this short attention span, instant gratification, digitally driven culture we live in, I am asking viewers to put their devices down, to take the time to pause and really look at what is in front of them, look at what is around them, and to see and question more than meets the eye”.
