Member Profile profile for Debra Jurss
The work is an abstraction of the environments that it is inspired by – informed and influenced by colour, line and pattern, and the rhythm and fluidity of water. The sculptural forms are made up of fluid layers, with colour flowing through different levels and a sense of fold, slide, and slip, echoing the changes and transitions in our moods and thoughts.
