http://www.dallasartnews.com/2012/06/deborah-rhee-through-thick-and-thin-artist-profile-from-australia-to-dallas/ (or PDF link) Last week I was approached by Melanie O'Halloran, an Art Journalist from Australia also currently living/working in Dallas. She asked to meet me at the LIVE Group Exhibition-"Through Thick and Thin" to write an article about me and my work for the Dallas Art News. It was a most welcome surprise and a very well written article.
"Of particular note to me were some 'Thin' works where Deborah has applied countless layers of translucent glaze in beautiful strong hues of blue, turquoise, magenta and purple, and then (using a bunched up pair of her daughters socks) removed patches and layers to create beautiful, lyrical pieces reminiscent of exotic fabric. In another work she returns to an earlier interest in the evocative properties of drips and dribbles which work with the layered glazes to great visual effect."
Thank you Melanie for taking the time to contact me and for the great conversation we have since had. So nice to share time with a fellow Australian and Art lover.
I look forward to reading more of Melanie's articles as they are published! I have been a fan of the Dallas Art News since we arrived in Dallas just over a year ago. I thought I would share the article here with you all on my blog.
