Debbie Thyne

Debbie has always liked the sleek-yet-boxy simplicity of Resene’s colour chart wallets for specifiers with their potential as portable, modular painting supports. Based on this, Debbie’s bee image is specifically designed for their black surfaces, to repeat randomly across the wall in a formation of flight. The handles suggest a portmanteau exhibition, transient, packagable, playful. The bee is iconic in Aotearoa as the buzzy toy and bearer of manuka honey as well as being a translation of her Hebrew name, Deborah.

These works are completed in Resene and have been on display in a grid formation 3x3 at Waiariki Institute of Technology.
