Biography from a third party submitted on 07/17/2010:
Devorah Jacoby’s paintings are psychologically savvy.  They expose the multiple layers of human interaction and explore the duality between the need to belong and the desire to be separate.  They grapple with real and complex impulses and dynamics found in all relationships. The paintings are both fierce and beautiful, in one presenting a woman stepping over dogs fornicating on the stairs, in another a woman emerging from a roof, with a child on her back, contemplating flight.  

There’s humor to Jacoby’s work, strange and dark, while the colors and brushstrokes suggest that her characters are both enchanted and frightened by the world they inhabit.
Inspired by such artists as Marlene Dumas and the Verist portrait painters Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Christian Schad and Egon Schiele,  Jacoby’s expression is a painterly one.  She moves masterfully between detailed imagery and abstraction, delighting in the process.

Devorah Jacoby, is an abstract / figurative painter.  Her sources of inspiration are her own life experiences, nature, and the objects of everyday life that surround her. Color, texture, and patterns also fascinate her and are a characteristic theme that is frequently present in her work.

Ms. Jacoby feels that painting has enabled her to reflect upon her environment with a sensitive perspective, and uses the oil paint's richfullness, versatility,and body to help her with her vision.  Before exploring art, Ms. Jacoby worked for many years as a licensed psychotherapist.  She now uses this strong psychological background as a foundation for her art.
