Painting and drawing since the age of two. Debra Lee Osborne creates paintings, drawings and mixed media artworks. By using an ever-growing archive of life experiences and found documents to create autonomous artworks, Osborne reflects on the closely related subjects of archive and memory. This often results in an examination of both the human need for ‘conclusive’ stories and the question whether anecdotes ‘fictionalize’ history.

Her paintings are an investigation of concepts such as authenticity and objectivity by using an encyclopedic approach and quasi-scientific precision and by referencing documentaries, ‘fact-fiction’ and popular scientific equivalents. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of society’s values, her works deal with the documentation of events and the question of how they can be presented or suppressed. The work tries to express this, with the help of psychology, science, current environment and technology, by telling a story or creating a metaphor.

Her works are an investigation into representations of (seemingly) concrete ages and situations as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realized in painting. With Plato’s allegory of the cave in mind, she often creates work using creative tactics, but these are never permissive. Play is a serious matter: during the creative process, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation.

Her  works are characterized by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of creative zen mentality in which recognition plays an important role. Debra currently lives in the mountains and prefers the solitude.
