About The Artist
Deborah Weintraub Perlman is a native of Baltimore, Maryland. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Boston University and Master of Fine Arts Degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
“Elements of the natural landscape currently influence my art. I am inspired by the spatial qualities of objects in my sight. Surface and structure form the basis of the work. Whatever the scene, my goal is to create a dynamic, provocative composition that celebrates planes, forms, shapes, and spaces.
My pieces begin with original photos, printed on drawing paper. Some work involves cutting and positioning the photos into a new composition, while others utilize the original photo. In each work, some pieces are elevated to interpret the dynamics of the space and create a bas-relief effect. I then draw into the piece, to highlight and accentuate spaces and forms, until my vision is realized.”
