Big thank you to HFA Fine Art Services for their mention of me as feature artist in their recent newsletter.
If you didn't get their newsletter, here's what you missed:
We had the pleasure of meeting Deb Chaney, the latest addition to the HFA Artist Program, at the Interior Design Institute of British Columbia’s “Gatsby Goes Rogue Gala.” Hosted at Rogue Wetbar, the IDIBC invited their sponsors to mix and mingle dressed in their finest roaring twenties threads. Deb introduced herself; a contemporary artist who merges spirituality with physicality. It took little time to see why Vancouver City Buzz and Culture Trip had named Deb as one of the top 10 Contemporary Artists to watch.
Deb’s work begins with a blank canvas, a palette knife, heavy body acrylic paint and the compelling need to create. Her work is multi-layered and textured, using a variety of mediums from embedding collage, sand and polymer, to gestural markings in pencil, conté, pastels, stamping and even spray paint. Her soul is on full display as she channels the challenges of daily living: feelings of beauty and pain, freedom and frustration, growth and stagnation. We thoroughly enjoyed combing through Deb’s catalogue of work and we are sure you will too.
Without further ado, we present to you...
