DEIRDRE

SULLIVAN-°©‐BEEMAN

Deirdre

Sullivan-°©‐Beeman

is

a

self-°©‐taught

figurative

and

contemporary

surrealist

painter.

She

uses

modified

oil

and

egg

tempera

techniques

of

the

14th

century

Old

Masters

to

create

works

of

magical

realism

that

seem

to

glow

from

within.

Celebrating

the

hard-°©‐earned

wisdom

of

childhood,

Sullivan-°©‐

Beeman

depicts

subjects

who

are

often

young,

hauntingly

innocent,

and

teetering

on

the

edge

of

naïveté

and

what

lies

beyond.

The

narratives,

symbology,

and

illumination

in

her

pieces

emerge

from

someplace

subliminal,

a

conjured

realm

of

magic,

mysticism,

and

mystery.

She

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,

the

tarot,

and

spirit

daemons.
