November 19 - December 15, 1991
"My work is informed by many sources: genealogy, oral history, African American folklore, and southern landscape. These interests prompt me to make paintings in which space and time and illusive and ambiguous. Meaning is alluded to through coded forms and guided by the titles. I am interested in making paintings that are paradoxical; suggesting the duality of form and content. The images in my paintings are ephemeral, they hover in fields of color formed space and slide between figuration and abstraction."
—Deborah Muirhead, 1991
