Deborah Zlotsky: Ephemera

July 2-30, 2015

Gallery Reception: Tuesday, July 7 at 6pm

SACI Artists Council Jury2D art works by DEBORAH ZLOTSKY (USA), winner of SACI’s first International Art Exhibition Award 2015 were selected by the jury of members from the SACI Artists Council from over 960 international entrants. She has been awarded a solo exhibition in the SACI Gallery at SACI’s historic Palazzo dei Cartelloni.

Inspired by Italy and the traditions of Arte Povera, Deborah Zlotsky has created collage work from everyday materials, enjoying the chance to manipulate surfaces and relationships, yet embracing the ephemeral and peculiar qualities of quotidian products like paper towels, newspapers, and plastic bags. In her current artistic research, Zlotsky works in a responsive way to build relationships, and while doing so has discovered working with found materials intensifies the performative aspects of this approach, as the fragility of the materials can only absorb a limited amount of alteration.

Deborah Zlotsky is a 2012 recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in painting and is represented by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in New York. She exhibits her work in exhibitions across the US, and her drawings are in the curated flat files of Pierogi Gallery and The Boston Drawing Project at Joseph Carroll and Sons Gallery, as well as the online-curated registry at The Drawing Center. Her work was selected for New American Paintings in 2014 (Northeast edition). A selected list of public collections includes Nordstrom, Progressive Insurance, Rutgers University, the Waldorf Astoria, the New York Palace Hotel and the Albany Institute of History and Art. Over the past 10 years, she has received residency fellowships at Yaddo, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, VCCA, Ox-Bow, Millay Colony for the Arts, Ragdale Foundation, Weir Farm Art Center and the Kimmel-Harding-Nelson Center for the Arts. Zlotsky received a BA in Art History from Yale University and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Connecticut. She teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).
