Debbie Smyth Art

British

Debbie Smyth is a textile artist most identifiable by her statement thread drawings; these playful yet sophisticated contemporary artworks are created by stretching a network of threads between accurately plotted pins. Her work beautifully blurs the boundaries between fine art drawings and textile art, flat and 3D work, illustration and embroidery, literally lifting the drawn line off the page in a series of pin and thread drawings. “I feel as if I am taking thread out of its comfort zone, presenting it on a monumental scale and creating an eye-catching, and in some cases, jaw-dropping effect.” Smyth has worked with companies both nationally and internationally and many iconic brands, including Adidas, Ellesse, The New York Times, Mercedes Benz, The Canadian Red Cross, Sony, Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Hermes and The Dorchester Hotel Group.
