1. “Text me” everyone says. Nothing is more profane than “texting.”

2. The intersection of poesis and image has rarely been achieved in Art.

3. When DEB texts, it’s a love letter straight from her heart – and a bullet from a f***ing gun.

4. DEB has two generations of painting – the textural and the textual.

5. The textural came first – as pure substance. Too sensitive for the (art) world, it was “cut up.”

6. The textual reintroduces the free form speech of the subject. Attack upon the feminine regurgitated as critique, mystique. And paves the way for the textural once again. Now they work together. Spirit made flesh is matter redeemed by the word.

7. Come read these paintings.
