Dee Shapiro

Page 1 | Biography | Information & News


I began my career as a pattern painter and was included in the Pattern and Decoration show at P.S.1. I was interested in mathematics and geometry in patterning and the Fibonacci Series in particular. This led to experimenting with paintings within a grid and subsequently off the grid. I began to observe the geometric intricacy of architectural designs and spaces and rendered them in small horizontal oil paintings of cities and landscapes. I moved back to pattern and focused on drawing in ink and Flashe´paint with imagery that related more to biomorphic forms with a somewhat humorous bent.

My recent works are an explosion of past obsessions with pattern; patterns that occur in nature, craft and work associated with women. Their relationship to geometry has always been an interest from my earliest work to my current work. The pieces which are drawn in ink, paint and collage create color and form with endless possible variations. I borrow from many sources for collage material including other artist's work in a collaborative effort where the results form an integrated piece.
