The CalArts Pool Fisheye Snapshot

Deborah Wasserman ’92

Deborah Wasserman ’92 writes, “Two of my recent paintings were included in a group show at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans, which opened on Sept. 7. Here’s a short excerpt from a statement about my pieces: ‘The imagery that emerges amidst these painterly spills, as if floating on a thin crust, narrates a crumbling environment both physical and social. Wasserman paints fallen and uprooted trees, murky water, piles of bricks and stones, floating or half-sunk empty boats, and people gathered around fires surrounded by torn pieces of cloth and clothes, evidence of human presence or disappearance.’”
