Art2Life Interview with Deborah Zlotsky

Contemporary abstract painting
June 3, 2021

Deborah Zlotsky discusses her process and career in this informal conversation with artist Susan Melrath for Art2Life. 


“My paintings, even though they look very graphic and flat –  they have some perspective that’s easy to see - but they always have these moments of trompe-l’oeil where there’s little pieces of string or little posts and things holding up. 


I’m interested in aging, so my paintings are aged in a way. I have to go through this certain set of changes and changing and changing and changing relationships. And then I always put in these bits and pieces that might hold up a part or connect a part, so they stay together.” - Deborah Zlotsky
