About this Artwork
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.
