Seeking Balance : Debra Smith

The new works contained in Debra Smith’s exhibition Seeking Balance are the result of both an intuitive process, formed from years of working with historic textiles, and a mindful practice. Each work is an open expression, constructed in an extraordinary way - with hours of stitching, embedding layer upon layer of material. For Smith, her art is an articulation of her life. It is this dance to distract and effort to breathe where eventually everything connects and the destination is a place of beauty and clarification.
