DeVito's intuitive handling of color is rarely figurative, yet the artist intermittently undercuts her abstractions through the use of familiar visual devices and effects. The artist also regularly employs titles that hint at her humorous sensibility. Treating painting primarily as a process for thinking, DeVito's practice engages with different ideas from the history of painting—especially the practice of transcription.
