Event description

Description

SEE(d) invites you and a guest to delve into the intricate world of Deborah Oropallo’s visual and video works on Saturday, September 28, 2019, 3:00pm - 5:00pm at her family farm in Marin County, CA. Wine and hand-crafted cheeses by Oropallo's husband will be available to savor along with Oropallo's exquisitely labored and layered artworks.

Deborah Oropallo is a painter and video artist who works with web-based imagery and digital media. Oropallo worked as a traditional painter until 2000, when technology slowly entered the work. She incorporates her own photography in addition to digital media, exploring what is currently in the news or surrounds her on her family farm in Northern California.

I do not want to just repaint an illustration of what the computer can do, but to push the pixels themselves as paint, and to layer imagery and veils to create depth and volume. Like painting, this process can engage nuance and subtlety. It also has the ability to alter an image in a way that no other medium can deliver or predict. -D. Oropallo

Oropallo has shown her work at The Whitney Biennial NY, The Corcoran Gallery Biennial, Washington DC, SF Museum of Modern Art. Selected Solo shows include the De Young Museum SF, Palm Desert Museum, Boise Art Museum, San Jose Museum of Art. Most recent monographs: “POMP” Published by Gallery 16, San Francisco 2009. “How To”, Published by the San Jose Museum 2001. She has been a recipient of a National Endowment for the arts Award, The Fleischhacker award, the Engelhard Award and most recently a Pollock Krasner Award. Oropallo earned a B.F.A from Alfred University, and M.A. and M.F.A. from University of California Berkeley. She lives and works on a farm in Novato, California.

SEE(d) seeks to address the problem of artist displacement that affects the future ecology of our society by offering meaningful and nourishing dialogues with artists and culture makers about creativity, art and ideas. Join us, your ticket (for you + a guest) goes directly to support the artist.
