Bird 6, mixed media on paper, 46 x 37 cmsDeborah GourlayDeborah Gourlay has always been interested in architecture and is particularly drawn to derelict 'forgotten spaces'; loving the sense of history, the mystery, the light and the 'lost and found' layers that such spaces impart. She uses a variety of media including painting, photography and drawing often experimenting with several techniques in one work. Recent projects have included Battersea Power Station, King's Cross Station, and Grange Park, a semi-derelict neo-classical mansion owned by English Heritage, near Winchester. Parallel with architectural spaces is her fascination with birds, sparked as she sat sketching in a derelict building one day and noticed a couple of crows flying in and out. She is intrigued by the simplicity of their form and the challenge of working fast to try and capture their fleeting movements and character.Click here to view more work by Deborah Gourlay
