Deborah Kapoor is a Seattle-based artist who creates paintings, prints and sculpture about perceptual details of physical experience, examining themes of the feminine, landscape of the body, and embodiment of phenomena. She has an MFA from the University of Delaware and a BFA from the University of North Texas. Kapoor’s interest in encaustic is heightened by the flexibility of the medium, pushing or stretching convention to incorporate new materials that support the content of each body of work. Exhibitions include Square Foot Art Basel Miami, Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, Trenton City Museum, Seattle City Hall, and university and commercial galleries. Publications include Fiber Art Now, Surface Design Journaland books, Encaustic in the Twenty-First Century; Authentic Visual Voices; Paper + Wax: Techniques for Combining Handmade Paper with Encaustic; and Encaustic with a Textile Sensibility. She teaches at Bellevue College, Kirkland Art Center and Schack Art Center, and is represented locally by ArtXchange Gallery, Seattle.
