Covid Gone
Covid Gone

This piece is called Covid Gone. Even though I had lots of extra time during the Pandemic to paint, I missed working with the Addus Art Club. I can't wait to go back to my program and have Covid Gone.

Deb O'Rourke: Installation Artist

If not for the sake of your heart
If not for the sake of your heart

Abstract: The world watched with horror as Israel rained bombs on Gaza in May 2021, massacring already traumatized families who live trapped in an open-air prison. For me - like many Jews who grew up in Zionist spaces - my horror was compounded as I read social media posts from friends, families, and elders in my home community, self-professed progressive Jews now parroting IDF talking points to justify the bombings.

Abstract: I've always enjoyed rhyming and creating poems for friends and family and I've always enjoyed talking! A few years ago I was introduced to 'spoken word' by my students and am now enjoying the delightful challenges of combined rhyming and ranting!

Milkweed Patch
Milkweed Patch

This photo is of a portion of "Milkweed Patch," the 1999 installation artwork that initially brought me to the attention of members of Camp Naivelt, who invited me to show slides of it at Camp. Remember slides? My closet is jammed with art now so I mostly write poetry and do a bit of photography.

Visual Art: Installation: Cast paper, Acetate and hot melt glue, inkjet on vellum.

In 1948 two things happened in Historic Palestine: a new state was carved out of Palestine, and a slow creeping genocide was set in motion. 531+ villages and municipalities were depopulated and most were destroyed with the creation of Israel. Naming is often part of the ritual of mourning as well as an attempt to give to the dead their day in history.

I list villages here to not only remember but also to put them back onto the map. In an attempt to get at the feeling of erasure, all the elements I have chosen to use are translucent, visible but difficult to get a read on; there, but begging you to make the effort to see.
