Physical description

Two artworks featuring a third dimension created with folded paper.

Artist's Statement:
"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." (http://100thgallery.com/gallery/debbie-lloyd/, accessed 08 May 2018)
