DEBORAH REMINGTON



Born 1935 in Haddonfield, New Jersey, died 2011
"I use lines of color in several different ways… Very often, the lines amplify shapes, hugging their edges, to make them hot or cold, or to come out or recede," Remington explained of her approach equally inspired by her training at the San Francisco Art Institute (B.F.A., 1955) and her study of calligraphy in Tokyo, Japan in 1957. The painter was a fixture in the Bay Area art community until 1965 when she relocated to Manhattan. California monotype artist Joseph Zircker helped arrange her residency at UNO (March 4-March 17, 1990) when the former Tamarind fellow (1973) worked with Tom Majeski and Gary Day on a color etching embellished by painterly passages of hand coloring. Remington, who has taught as an adjunct professor of painting at Cooper Union in New York City (1972-1995) and New York University (1994-1998), has received numerous awards including a N.E.A. fellowship in 1979.
