Kathryn Markel Fine Art presents Deborah Zlotsky: DNA Paintings

Kathryn Markel Fine Art is pleased to share their online exhibition Deborah Zlotsky: DNA Paintings. The artist’s  vivid abstract paintings reference 1960s psychedelia and the graphic boldness of Pop painting. Her newest paintings feature vibrant, pared-down geometric compositions that are both timeless and contemporary, brought to life by her signature use of color, shape, and perspectival shifts. Zlotsky’s artistic process comes out of an interest in the idea of chance as a method of creating new relationships through responses to unexpected decisions:

“On a broader level, I’m fascinated by the way history evolves through the accumulation of actions and reactions—in the way complexities are built over time through the accidents that get baked in. In these new paintings, I limited my focus to include only two connecting shapes. I was thinking about my elderly parents in particular and the coincidences of one’s DNA. The unique configuration of scale, shape, color, and space in each painting refers to both the unlikelihood and the generative intricacy in even the simplest of unions.”
