Today found Deborah Oropallo once again breaking down the boundaries of painting and printmaking to create works which defy genre.

Donald Farnsworth worked with Oropallo to generate a unique texture on several canvases, which she then printed, painted, re-printed and re-painted with layers of digitally manipulated imagery sourced from fetish catalogues and 18th century portraiture.
