Bio and Artist's Statement

Deborah Druick was born in Montreal, Canada and graduated from The Montreal Museum School of Art and Design, where she earned her B.F.A., and Concordia University, where she earned her M.F.A. equivalent. She has lived and worked in Hong Kong where she had a solo show of paintings and drawings reviewed in the South China Morning Post. She has also participated in exhibitions in Macau, China and all over the New York tri-state region. She now lives and works in the Bronx, NY.

Druick's paintings address issues of gender definition, self-identification and female objectification, using stylized figuration and saturated high-key color. She emphasizes and exaggerates stereotypical concepts of precision, perfection and beauty in femininity. Her females are faceless archetypes, eliciting questions about identity, self-awareness and sentiment. What is the psyche of these women and what are they saying?
