psychologically savvy

Devorah Jacoby has a background as a licensed psychotherapist, which is one of the reasons I am featuring her work.

D. 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.

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.
