Deborah DeWit studio February 2020

 

“In this work I’ve explored a lot of territory that interests me—how the process of painting leads to ideas and how ideas lead to meaning. The subject matter has grown out of my personal perception of the world around me which includes nature and the human mind and heart”

Deborah DeWit considers the human experience and moments in time through natural and figurative subjects rendered in luminous oil paintings. Her metaphoric compositions utilize familiar subjects in unsuspecting ways with many scenes conglomerated from her home-studio-property.

DeWit is a well-known artist residing on Oregon’s North Coast. Her mature painting style has developed over the course of her lengthy career, which began as a photographer in late 1970’s. She has several books published on her work, highlighting overarching themes in photography, writing, oil painting and pastels. Deborah creates symbolic imagery through the interplay of indoor and outdoor environments, elevating her sensitive and thought-provoking compositions into a realm where real and imagined space meet.
