***
Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman is a surrealist painter born out of the 3rd Wave of Feminism. She came into her own in Los Angeles in the 1990s alongside cultural movements like riot grrrl, Queercore, and DIY. As a self-taught artist, Sullivan-Beeman utilizes many DIY ethics and methods. Her paintings are a palimpsest that employs the imposed history and lore of the "girl" in empowering femininity. Her young women find their strength in a multitude of potentialities and sexualities. The iconography and simulacra in her transcendental works emerge from someplace subliminal. These elements reflect her view of the world and have metaphorical meaning through investigation of identity, gender, otherworldly narratives, and mythical animal personas. She often uses her dream journal as inspiration, exploring the collective unconscious with an overt curiosity for the bizarre and esoteric such as alchemy and the tarot. She paints using a modified oil and egg tempera Renaissance technique.
