Retrospective: Deborah McWatters Padgett (the book)

Cover Image

This video is a slide show depicting the pages from a book I've published compiling my visual work from the time I was a student in the 1970's until the present. The text does not appear with clarity in these images but I hope to offer a glimpse of my history as an artist.

Interior Monologue Series

The INTERIOR MONOLOGUE series reflects my inner dialogue or conversations with myself. The work is inspired by the surroundings, furnishings, music and atmosphere in which I find myself creating, reflecting or simply "being" in a state of physical, emotional and spiritual awareness. The work is intuitive and often abstract though depicting recognizable representations of objects or structures.
