  • ABOUT THE ARTIST

     

    Debbie Lee is an internationally trained and collected artist. Having studied in London, Glasgow, Chicago and India she now keeps her studio on the coast of Dorset.

    I am rediscovering Dante’s Hell through scroll making. I have been researching how to translate Dante’s Inferno into a fold out artists book with a view to developing images into colour lithography. Supported by a bursary from a_n The Artists Information Company and Arts Council England. This is massive encouragement for me to continue to develop my work thanks to @anartistsinfo and @aceagrams for awarding me the time, space and money bursary.

  • INSPIRATION

    Ditch your Demons a new monotype. I have been making these in preparation to make some colour litho prints using Dante’s Inferno as a theme. This process helps me to think about the ‘bare bones’ of my approach and find personal meaning within the story.

    “64    ‘So tell me, then,’ my master now went on,
    ‘among the criminals beneath the tar,
    are any – can you tell? – Italian?’ ‘Just now,’
    67    he answered me, ‘I left a man from there.
    If only I were with him still beneath the lid,
    I wouldn’t need to dread these hooks and claws.’
    70    ‘We’ve taken quite enough of this!’ So said
    the Loveslot. Skewering an arm, he sliced
    a muscle out in one long hookful.”
