Debbi Kenote loves to interlock organic shapes that ceaselessly compete with each other to come forward or get pushed backwards in and out of frames. And in works from 2020, she introduced spray paint - the fuzzy lines snaking over the surface contrast with the more defined, puzzle-like composition underneath, reminiscent of both plant growths and street art.
Works in NY
Debbi's works are sneaky in a sense that, instead of denying the existence of a frame, they subtly push against and peak out from it (have you noticed the pairs of eyes in some of her paintings?) Neat square pieces on the outer boundaries of the frame devolve into patterns, curves, and patches of sprayed paint. Some of Debbi's paintings actually look like puzzles, challenging you to play an active role - only to reveal that, in the end, her puzzles yield fun for the sake of it rather than a finished picture.
