About deborah druick

My paintings address issues of gender definition, self-identification and female objectification, using stylized figuration and saturated high-key color. I emphasize and exaggerate stereotypical concepts of precision, perfection and beauty in femininity. My females are faceless archetypes, eliciting questions about identity, self-awareness and sentiment. The question of willingness and consent are also issues that need to be dealt with and answered. What is the psyche of these women and what are they saying?
