Artist's Statement

Deborah Danziger was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has lived and worked in Atlanta, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles as well as Spain, and the Czech Republic before coming to New York. Her current paintings depict a whimsical world where anything is not only possible, but probable. Weaving images and ideas throughout, she explores her own idiosyncratic vocabulary as visions of birds with penis heads, children doing what they will, flowers with bird faces, mythical characters with penis bodies, and other dynamic creatures, populate this world. She intentionally adopts symbolic and social meanings of the penis and makes it both genderless and playful. Working within her own imagination, Deborah endeavors to articulate a world that captures both the beauty and strangeness of life. While mischievous and unpredictable, the world she seeks to represent is ultimately lighthearted and optimistic.
