Virginia Derryberry

Virginia Derryberry’s current work includes large scale oil on canvas figure narrative paintings along with fabric/costume constructions, which blend narrative elements from mythology and alchemy, the forerunner of modern science. The intent is to suggest multiple interpretations rather than straightforward illustration of a specific narrative. She has also been using multiple panels as another way to break up traditional narrative sequence and raise questions in the viewer’s mind about what is being conveyed. At first glance, it seems that a “real” space is being defined, but in fact, the painted images are constructed from multiple viewpoints and lighting systems. Passages of volumetric rendering set next to more abstract, painterly areas result in the creation of a virtual, shifting world where nothing is quite what it seems.
