Deborah Bigeleisen | 2018 Press

I can state with certainty that my paintings, my vision combined with my technique, stand alone in the fine art arena. My work probes the bridge between beauty and science, order and chaos. As one art journalist said: “It brings a unique vision to the genre of floral painting to embody a contemporary world.” A world where change occurs at lightening speed, where one rarely looks beneath the surface, where the meaning of beauty is continually being redefined, and where chaos is the order of the day.
