Seven Blades at Sunset Jeffrey Hull Gallery

Seven Blades at Sunset

When I haven’t painted in a while and there’s nothing ‘easy’ to pick up where I left off, I will often grab a piece of paper and just start painting with little or no planning (I tend to get mired in the planning). It usually starts the creativity and voila, I’m back. I’ve painted blades of grass with a sunset and ocean behind it before. In this case, as I worked backwards from painting to planning, it dawned on me it would be challenging to limit the blades of grass to the number of seven. I wanted to see if I could make it work.

Deborah DeWit “Thresholds & Reflections” Exhibition: May 4 – June 19 White Bird Gallery

Exhibition: May 4 – June 19

Deborah DeWit “Thresholds & Reflections”

New Paintings

Opening Reception
Saturday, May 5th, 5:00 – 7:00pm
during Spring Unveiling Arts Festival

White Bird Gallery
251 N. Hemlock, Cannon Beach, OR

For her new exhibition, Deborah DeWit continues to consider the human experience and moments in time through natural and figurative subjects rendered in luminous oil paintings. This new body of work juxtaposes interior and exterior environments, using real world imagery to create narratives that reflect the mind body relationship and how our experiences in the natural world shape the way we think. Architectural elements like windows & thresholds explore these connections between inner and outer realities both physically and philosophically. DeWit’s metaphoric compositions include depictions of people in the local community and what they do in the day-to-day as well as scenes conglomerated from her home-studio-property. As the artist states:

“This group of paintings reflects my ideas on the subject of how our senses interact with nature to feed our imagination and our intellect, and how we cross thresholds from the real world to the meaning of things.”

Deborah 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. DeWit now has several books published on her work, highlighting overarching themes in photography, writing, oil painting and pastels. DeWit’s artwork expresses autobiographical subjects to create symbolic imagery through the interplay of indoor and outdoor environments to elevate her sensitive and thought-provoking compositions into a realm where real and imagined space meet.
