Deanna Sirlin - Artist Talk
From Katie Gentilello
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.
Sirlin is currently the Artist in Residence at Georgia Tech’s Crosland Library where she has made a new site work, Watermark, that address the most important issue of the 21st century-- climate change-- through color, transparency and composition that has been influenced by the exhibition 50 Years of Science Fiction at Georgia Tech.
