How To: The Art of Deborah Oropallo
"How-to manuals, whether instructions for safety, military, or magic codes, have served as source material throughout the body of Deborah Oropallo's work. Long admired in the Bay Area, Oropallo has achieved renown for her remarkable ability to transform mundane objects into striking images of poetic resonance. In the past twenty years her work has evolved from richly saturated paintings of image and text to larger, somewhat abstract silkscreen canvases of untraditional subject matter such as rope, doormats, and railroad tracks. In her most recent work, Oropallo incorporates digital imagery, creating monumental canvases of industrial containers, buckets and pipes that we often overlook everyday. The San Jose Museum of Art is particularly pleased to present this survey at a crucial moment of the painter's career."
