About

Mixed media on unstretched canvas - Unframed Deanna Sirlin wants viewers to experience painting in a more personal way. Her work ranges from large-scale, gestural paintings, to small-scale collages, to monumental in situ installations. Formally, it is colorful, textured and abstract. But it is about more than its observable parts. It is about the invisible as much as the visible. Her overarching philosophy is perhaps best communicated through her installations, such as Retracings (1999), a C-print transparency designed to cover all of the windows of the High Museum in Atlanta. The imagery in Retracings is typical of the idiosyncratic aesthetic Sirlin has developed—biomorphic shapes and gestural brush marks in a dynamic sea of layered, sensuous colors. But beyond what is conspicuous on the surface, there is something ethereal about the work that establishes a contemplative tone. That feeling is heightened as viewers move from outside the building, where they see an image on a surface, to the inside, where they realize they have now inhabited the work. The effect evolves with the changing light. Ideas about colors, textures, surfaces, lines, and shapes give way to thoughts about atmosphere, space, and shifting conditions. The sumptuous, tactile imagery pulls us in then something unseen holds us in place, offering a chance to experience both formal beauty and contemplative escape. This is at the heart of what Sirlin does. The work is about perspective, about opening up to new ways of perceiving, and interacting with the world. Deanna Sirlin is an American abstract artist best known for her gestural paintings and monumental installations. Her work prioritizes color. In her paintings, she explores how texture and composition affect color relationships. Through her installations, she dramatically alters physical environments, using color and light to challenge how viewers interact with space. She lives and works on a horse farm outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Work by Deanna Sirlin has been shown in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, as well as in France, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Turkey, Latvia, and China. Works by Sirlin are included in numerous institutional and private collections, including that of the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia, the Mark Rothko Centre in Daugavpils, Latvia, the Shenzhen Institute of Fine Arts in Shenzhen, China, Kunsthaus Nurnberg, Germany, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Georgia.
