Debbi Chan, Big Bug on Bud, 2012, photograph, 8 x 12 in.
Debbi Chan's multi-dimensional, multi-faceted, and multi-medium practice blends Eastern traditions with the splendor of the American West. Chan's representations of the natural world stem from traditions of Chinese painting, such as paintings on rice paper and song jin, as well as the traditional GU style: watercolor and ink on painting silk, partially embroidered with silk thread. Chan also creates seal carvings and deep relief carvings in natural materials such as wood, stone, bone, and antler, as well as working in other media such as embroidery, artist books, etchings, prints, calligraphy and photography.
