Debbie’s home and studio are located in Ballarat Victoria. Debbie returned to study in 2005 completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Arts) degree at the University of Ballarat in 2007, with honours the following year. 2009 saw Debbie still at the University, this time as artist in residence.
During her time at the University Debbie exhibited in many group exhibitions and her work was selected for the National Graduates Show at PICA in Western Australia.
Debbie’s first solo exhibition was held at Space22 in Ballarat, towards the end of 2010.
My artwork explores the visual experience that can be achieved using black and white, lineal patterns or by creating illusion and surface movement through the simple manipulation and repetition of forms.
In these works I have used everyday objects, and shapes, repeated, reconfigured and recontextualised to provide the viewer with visual challenges that slow down and complicate the reading of the work.
In the words of a former lecturer of mine, who kindly delivered the opening speech at one of my exhibitions -
There is in Debbie’s work a belief in the transcendental power of repetition, a tribute in many respects to the fact that human kind is defined by nothing more noble and uplifting than its ability and obligation to persist.
Thankyou Doug, you said it beautifully.
