Bio

Deborah Zlotsky is known for her colorful abstract paintings. Zlotsky has a BA in the History of Art from Yale University and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Connecticut. She lives in Delmar, NY and teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI where she is a Professor of Experimental and Foundation Studies.

"As an artist with a commitment to abstraction, the narrative elements of my work are not overt. The stories I tell emerge from a painting’s history of accumulated actions, spatial continuities and disruptions, and evidence of accidents, change, and repair. I am especially interested in the way the past permeates the present."

Zlotsky received New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Fellowships in Painting in 2012 and 2018, and she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2019. Zlotsky’s work is in public and private collections, including Nordstrom, Capital One, the RISD Museum, Progressive Insurance, the Waldorf Astoria, and the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection. Recent residency fellowships include Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, the Saltonstall Foundation, and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art.
