-Banks Peninsula, Canterbury
-Deborah Fuller has been an Artisan since 2000 and currently resides in Little River on the Banks Peninsula. Her work is instantly recognisable for her unique blend of photographed imagery on multi-layered, mixed media painted backdrops. Moments of light and cast shadows are captured then combined with textured landscapes of Turquoise Blue and Burnt Umber. There is often a theme of nostalgia and recollection. Dwellings, vacant chairs and objects convey a story of calm and stillness, with an underlying tone of ambiguity. Leaving the viewer to impart their own meaning.
Her work can be found throughout New Zealand at numerous galleries including her own in Akaroa (lava gallery). Her work is also part of the Luciano Benetton Foundation NZ Collection exhibiting worldwide.
