Artist Deborah Zlotsky does the “Impossible”



The Wilson Art Gallery in the Noreen Reale Falcone Library is hosting “Being Impossible,” an art exhibit featuring drawings and paintings of Deborah Zlotsky. Zlotsky created each piece by manipulating powdered graphite on sheets of mylar.

“What really drew us to her work was this piece called ‘Grizzy,’” Wilson Art Gallery coordinator Patricia Mason said. “It draws different emotions. Like the rest of her art, it makes you wonder and think. There could be a dragon figure in there, but it could be something else. There could be a dozen different things here.”

A committee of five or six people meets annually to decide on the Wilson Art Gallery’s exhibits for the upcoming school year. Mason noted that the committee aims for a variety of art and ideas.

“We chose the recent Burma photography exhibit because of the politics involved,” Mason explained. “We wanted to bring that to students and give it a voice.”

“Being Impossible,” on the other hand, presents more of an abstract concept.

“The title refers to the impossibility of the forms and relationships I describe,” Zlotsky said. “The work is all part of a series called ‘LifeLike,’ playing off the term that refers to being like life.”

Zlotsky has been creating art since attending Yale University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree.

“I studied art history at Yale and eventually, after graduation, I found I wanted to learn how to paint and draw,” Zlotsky said. “Once I started down that road, I never deviated.”

Zlotsky expects viewers to make their own connections to the works presented.

“I hope they will enjoy the subtle tonal and sculptural relationships each drawing contains,” she said, “and I hope they will connect these ‘impossible’ forms with their notions of what occurs in nature.”

“Being Impossible” can be seen at the Wilson Art Gallery until March 30.
