"Deanna Sirlin: Retracings"
1999-09-04 until 1999-11-07
High Museum of Art
Atlanta, GA, USA United States of America

Deanna Sirlin: Retracings is an installation using the latest in photographic and digital technology to transform the High Museum of Art into a monument to light and color. Three new paintings by Atlanta artist Deanna Sirlin were digitally scanned into a computer, enlarged to 50 times their original size, and printed by laser onto transparent film. The resulting transparent images, numbering almost 170, have been mounted on the fašade windows of the High's Richard Meier building, creating a dynamic stained glass effect. By day, light filtering through the transparencies dapples the High's white interior with exuberant colors. By night, the High's interior lights set the Museum aglow.

The digital technology I'm using reveals colors and qualities in my brushstrokes not visible to the naked eye. When a one-inch brushstroke becomes a four-foot image, you can see a whole host of distinct colors and textures that our eyes normally blend together. - Deanna Sirlin

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Sirlin now makes her home just north of Atlanta in Alpharetta, GA and is an instructor at the Atlanta College of Art.

Deanna Sirlin: Retracings is organized by the High Museum of Art. In-kind support has been provided by Colorchrome Atlanta, Inc. and Ilford.
