Searching for traces, layers left behind which determine heritage.
Using traditional and digital techniques Deborah’s work explores memory through association. The photograph becomes a drawing board where space, light and mark making are a bridge to the historic arguments of superiority in media. Monumental and intimate formats serve as tools to study how our mind recalls details, environments, locations or haptic qualities, which trigger impressions that once shaped our lives.
In creating a layering of media, Deborah links time with trace. These works become anchored both in the past and in the future simultaneously. It is here the discrepancy between what is anticipated and what is expected lies.
Significance of juxtaposition of images through overlapping or proximity plays between myth and fact, creating the story. This is memory as a format to identify, interpret, empower and destroy. Our search for what was real and the echoes of dreams we once had.
