About

Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman a self-taught figurative and contemporary surrealist painter who integrates modified oil and egg tempera techniques of the 14th century Old Masters and the genre of magic realism to create pieces that appear to glow from within.

 

Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot has written that her “deft combination of both modes of art-making yield mesmerizing results that satisfy the impulses of not only the art-historical technique and the fabulistic narrative, at the same time exploring the complex interplay between rendered space in two and three dimensions. So there is a lot going on at once in her work, but whether you enter it through its aspects of formalism, symbolism, or process, with Sullivan-Beeman, the medium is the message.”

 

Sullivan-Beeman uses her personal dream journal to inspire her artwork, exploring Jung’s collective unconscious with an overt curiosity for the bizarre and the esoteric, especially alchemy and the tarot. Sullivan-Beeman is based in Los Angeles, where her work has been shown at Corey Helford Gallery, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, and Gabba Gallery. Her show with the Stephen Romano Gallery is her first solo exhibition in New York City.
