Interview with Deb Covell
Deb Covell: interview
Deb Covell (b1966) is a painter who seeks to celebrate the material qualities of paint. Rejecting pictorial imagery, she also eschews the traditional canvas support, producing paintings that hang from walls like drapes or lie folded and crumpled on the floor. There is a sculptural element to her works, but, she explains, it is far more about form, materiality and the versatility of paint.
Covell has just completed a very full on month-long residency, open studio and exhibition at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art but there is no time for a rest, as she is soon to be exhibiting in a group show in New York City. Luckily she managed to find time to answer Studio International’s questions.
