DEBORAH REMINGTON CHARITABLE TRUST FOR THE VISUAL ARTS

Deborah Remington: A Life in Drawing

Introduction by Margaret Mathews-Berenson. Text by John Mendelsohn, Lilly Wei.

Deborah Remington (1930– 2010) emerged as an Abstract Expressionist in the late 1940s and ‘50s while attending the California School of Fine Arts where she studied with Clyfford Still, David Park and Elmer Bischoff. Following a sojourn in Japan to immerse herself in the study of calligraphy, she moved to New York in 1965, joining a thriving art scene that included Chuck Close, Brice Marden, Dorothea Rockburne and others. Drawing was a constant throughout her career, as it shifted from gestural abstraction to the more tightly structured geometric compositions that are her signature style. Her abstract language, with its luminous spatial permutations, bordering on the surreal, defies easy categorization. Today, with the general public accustomed to the disconcerting visual effects made possible by digital technology, this is an ideal moment to reconsider her work with its myriad complexities.

Eerie and Mystifying. Deborah Remington: A Life in Drawing

Eerie and Mystifying. Deborah Remington: A Life in Drawing

"I find the forms I invent continually reflected in the external world, and must believe that the opposition and attraction implicit between them mirrors something which pervades all life, artistic, biological and intellectual. It is the tension between male and female, balance, order and chance, between dissonance and harmony." Soot Series #1 (1963) is reproduced from Deborah Remington: A Life in Drawing, a cool little book on the inveterately courageous but largely overlooked artist who died in 2010. A distant relative of Western painter Frederic Remington, Deborah Remington founded the celebrated Six Gallery in 1950s San Francisco, lived in Japan for two years in order to immerse herself in the art of calligraphy, traveled throughout southeast Asia working odd jobs, and came back to New York to produce mystifying, eerie paintings based upon the studies collected here. continue to blog
