The image of the self as child as Alice, as Snow white, as Dorothy
setting out along the yellow brick road- runs through much of this show.
I first encountered the art of Debbie Lee in Glasgow ten years ago; an
astonishing outpouring, through which she vividly and intuitively
recreated her life in the studios, streets and gardens around her.
seemed already the vision of an undying child, endowed with an awkward
grace that was utterly compelling. Could she hold onto that raw
creativity even in mature adulthoodNULL
