BROOD FILM FEST 2016 OFFICIAL SELECTION:
Debbie Lee (UK, Dorset)
Acrylic on paper
“As a mother, artist and art therapist I am interested in helping to de-marginalise the areas of play and parenthood by elevating their significance. For me the playground was both a source of enjoyment and anxiety. As my children learned how to play independently, I learned how to let go. The repetitive process of recording my drawings’ progress through stop-frame animation through erasing and redrawing over the traces of what remained resonated with the process of children mastering an activity through play and evoked strong memories of childhood.”
Debbie Lee studied drawing and painting at the Glasgow School of Art. Her work has been showcased in solo and group exhibitions across Europe as well as the USA and Asia.
