DEBORAH STEVENSON 2/3 – Artist’s Statement:
“My paintings – When working on the canvas, I am drawn to painting scenes derived from living in urban environs.  My work reflects my interest in the ‘geometry’ and balance in the world around us, as observed in the quotidian views of skies framed by power poles, phone lines, edges of buildings at twilight, etc.  I love trying to capture the element of time affecting space;  the views change constantly as one moves through the environment, with one’s eyes looking upward at the swirling skies…. I paint in oil. I love the physicality of the medium: it is smelly, it is sensual – it is fast, and it is slow. ”
