Deirdre’s paintings, synthesized from observation and imagination, are a dialogue between the seen and the remembered, the planned and the surprise that happens on the canvas. In these images of water and women a tension is created between representation and abstraction as the figures appear and disappear in the fluid surfaces of each painting. Water is a mysterious and vital element. It is both immensely powerful and at the same time soft, intimately linked to birth and sustenance as well as to death. Working with both brush and palette knife, she layers one color over another. In this way the contrasts of opacity and transparency, of thick and thin, of solid and liquid are the dance of my paintings.
