Great artworks by Debra Hampton
Her work has spanned various unconventional medium and process while investigating issues of commodity, identity and appropriation. She is best known for mixed-media mashup collage portraits which are created from 1000s of magazine cutouts, splattered ink, and intricately stippled shapes. Accompanying the portrait series are sculpted objects such as headdresses, talisman, and full-size armor. Recently, she was selected by the New York City Department of Transportation to design & implement a public mural spanning 600 feet of pedestian/bicycle pathways along the Brooklyn waterfront.
