Dark Landscapes for a White House critiques our cultural habituation to political and ecological traumas. Oropallo employs photomontage as a strategy for visualizing how media-based images accumulate and overwhelm our collective consciousness.
DEBORAH OROPALLO was born in Hackensack, New Jersey. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University, and a joint Master of Arts/Master of Fine Arts from The University of California, Berkeley. Although originally trained in painting, Oropallo’s practice incorporates mixed media including photomontage, computer editing, print technique and paint. Her composite works use layered visual sources to produce a dense interplay between time, place, form and content. The resulting works bear traces of the distortions that evolve or remain from digital manipulation and removal.
