Bakos, Deborah

About the artist
This year I will be exhibiting work from 3 different series:) ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Deborah is interested in the relationship between our private and public selves - what we reveal and what we keep hidden. With references to architectural form, her work involves construction and deconstruction of built surfaces that both embrace the temporal and allude to selective memory and nostalgia. In her latest gestural and geometric abstracts she hints at personal experiences that keep her grounded, unearths the fragile past and plants it squarely in the present. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Deborah holds a Bachelor of Education in the Humaniites and Fine Arts from SFU and a Certificate of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University. She exhibits her work locally and internationally. Her most recent project with her mural group "13 Feet Off the Ground" was a month long Art Residency in the rural town of Graniti, Sicily. Deborah is an award winning member of the Federation of Canadian artists and a founding / working board member for Parker Art Salon. Deborah also provides painting demos for Opus Art Supplies and local artist guilds. She donates her work and time, annually to charitable organizations supporting health, children, women and the environment.
