Bortolami is pleased to announce a solo show by Deborah Remington (b. 1930, d. 2010) featuring paintings and drawings from each of five decades of her practice. It is the most comprehensive exhibition to date by Remington, a reevaluation of an artist whose biomorphic abstractions defied categorization during her lifetime and remain stridently unique today, over a decade since her passing.
Deborah Remington: Five Decades features the first public exhibition of Encounters (2007), the artist’s final painting. In it there are aspects from each era of her career – the gesture of her AbEx beginnings, the palette of her hard-edge period and the calligraphic brushwork of her late works. It is the summation of a life’s work rendered in unflinching eloquence.
