Debra Keirce - Artist Statement

My still life paintings are based on hauntingly familiar themes. I strive to depict the magic in our reality to the best of my ability.

Statues sing opera as you marvel at their beauty. Numbers fly off clocks as I warp time to accomplish the day's agenda. The fabric of time morphs into bubbles that float away as I try to be patient. The timeless nature of a mother's love is fueled by a fiery glow in the third eye of a glass head, as strong as it is delicate. Flying fish let you choose how colorful your next move will be, and how high your next reach will be.

I am a contemporary realist painter, and I offer art that invites the viewer to imagine.
