Ones to Watch: Deborah Moss

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

Inspired by New Zealand’s rich countryside, artist Deborah Moss creates expressive and richly coloured abstract works. The rhythmic markings found in her paintings convey the energy she draws from the natural environment. Deborah initially applies layers and colour playfully, inviting a more considered response as the dialogue between gesture and storytelling evolves. Through experimentation with texture and a variety of non-conventional tools, Deborah is able to add a sense of intrigue to her work.
