Deann Stein Hasinoff
(14"x11" pastel on gessoed paper)
I first met Deann, a fellow artist, in an abstract drawing class at the University of Alberta. Her artistic practice continues to focus on exploring abstraction through the use of digital technology. Using black and white digital drawings, along with photography, Deann creates thought provoking expressive art.
Each image is delicately rendered evoking the look and feel of a charcoal drawing. The power in each piece is subtle yet palpable, giving depth and strength to the work.
Deann's upcoming exhibition, Catching Smoke, is a series of digital drawings working to give visual form to the anxiety she says she has experienced for most of her life. The theme of Deann's show is especially poignant during these unsettled times.
The show will be held at Harcourt House, here in Edmonton.
(If the gallery is unable to open due to Covid 19 the exhibition will be virtual.)
