Deborah Lee Klein. Dimensional Design & Illustrations

12/08/2020 -


As a result of Covid-19 Stage 3 restrictions this exhibition has gone virtual 24/7. We’re also posting regularly on Just contact us on 5331 7011 or use the contact form for all viewing or sales enquiries. “My work process is a form of meditation, requiring inner stillness and an awareness of when to step back and just let things be. I call myself an illustrator rather than an artist because I simply aspire to interpret what is in front of me – though the fragile status of my subjects, the delicate quality of their rendering and the essentially ephemeral nature of the materials I use might be seen as a statement in itself.”

“My work is an exploration of the possibilities inherent in the old craft of cut-paper illustration, reflecting my fascination with the infinite variety of life on earth, the fine natural science specimens to be found in every self-respecting Edwardian gentleman’s library, and the lyrical decorative traditions of Asia.

I use archival-quality fine art papers and water-soluble glue in creating my dimensional illustrations and forms. Founded on close observation and careful drawing, my designs are built from layers of paper that are embossed, cut and shaped.

The rest is light and shade.” Deborah Lee Klein
