Book Talk: Deborah Paris’ Painting the Woods

Registration for this talk is closed. 

Deborah Paris, artist and author, will read and discuss her book Painting the Woods: Nature, Memory and Metaphor, published by Texas A&M University Press in 2020. The book chronicles her time working in Lennox Woods, a rare old growth southern hardwood forest near her home in northeast Texas. A place-based meditation on nature, art, memory and time, Painting the Woods explores the experience of landscape through the lens of art and artmaking.

Speaker: Deborah Paris is an American landscape painter. Her moody, tonal paintings reflect an intense, intuitive connection to the natural world and its rhythms. Based on a foundation of intense and close observation, drawing, memory and imagination, and indirect painting techniques, she produces luminous works full of mystery and mood. She has been featured in Art of the West, American Painting Video Magazine, American Artist, Southwest Art, The Pastel Journal and Professional Artist Magazine. Her work has been shown at the Laguna Art Museum, the Albuquerque Museum of Art, the Panhandle-Plains Museum, the Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, The National Wildlife Museum, and the Gilcrease Museum. She is the founder of The Landscape Atelier, her teaching studio, and the author of the popular blogs Deborah Paris – A Painting Life and Field Notes, the blog of The Landscape Atelier. Her work is represented by galleries throughout the US. When she isn’t painting or teaching, Deborah is an avid walker, birder, naturalist, reader and writer. She lives and works in northeast Texas with her husband, two dogs and two cats.
