Painting

Bakos, Deborah

About the artist
This year I am exhibiting work from 2 different but related series:) ____________________________________________________________________________________________ My vintage-photo based paintings are constructs that examine the history of gender inequality. I use symbolism, humour and a hint of sarcasm in my investigation of the role media plays in the development of current social norms for women. The addition of textiles, traditional "women's work", is a nod to the frequently over-looked contributions by female artists. Concurrently, I am working on a series of gestural, geometric pieces that feature the moon and other cyclical bodies, all of which carry the weight of history in their symbolic references to the nature of women. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Deborah holds a Bachelor of Education in English Lit / Humanities and Fine Arts from SFU and a Certificate of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University. She exhibits her work locally and internationally. Deborah's most recent project with her art collective "13 Feet Off the Ground" is an Art Residency / Exhibition in Jose Del Cabo, Mexico next February.
