Adrian Deckbar began her career in painting and drawing with a strong interest in realism. As a student of Robert Bechtle she was introduced to Photo-Realism while working on her Masters at San Francisco State. She began photographing her subjects and then projecting images from 35mm slides as a way to develop and study her interests in the figure. Later in her career she turned her attention to landscapes with the same dynamic approach that she employed in her figurative paintings. Working in oils and water based media, Deckbar has moved fluidly from dramatically charged figurative works to deeply complex and vivid Landscapes. She is presently working on new expressive figurative paintings that she will be unveiling very soon.
