Guest Artist: Deborah Baronas
Deborah is an award winning artist who studied painting and textile design at RISD. Her large landscape scale oil/pastel/graphite paintings and installations are a combination of iconography and pattern that make up the terrain. She began as a textile designer and now incorporates the use of fabric in many mediums. Her work provides a sensuous, ethereal and contemplative quality to an investigation of patterns, rhythms and movement. The repetition of silhouettes and shapes found in the landscape evoke feelings of familiarity, order and "calmness" in a distressing world.
