New York, NY, May 20-22, 2018, Javits Center - Art for Living presents the photographic artwork of Deborah Mills Thackrey making her debut in SURTEX’s Design District (Booth #2857).
Deborah Mills Thackrey is transforming her art from gallery walls to surface designs for all manner of products, from apparel and furniture to home decor and paper goods. Her striking, color-saturated images range from painterly details of graffiti to mesmerizing, moire-like patterns of reflections. They make a striking, unique statement on scarves, clothing, upholstery and even sneakers. All of Deborah's images are found objects transformed into stunning digital art.
"Looking at her 'Reflections' series I am taken aback at how she sees designs and colors in things and in places that most of us pass by and never see. The images, unaltered, are simply beautiful and they beckon the viewer to pause, take a breath and luxuriate in the patterns. It is clear that she is traveling down a unique road…leaving clues that suggest a true creative spirit at work." - Michael Katakis, author and photojournalist

Thackrey, as a former graphic designer and art director for companies such as Apple, is well-versed in digital art and printing. She has work in private collections from New York to California, in corporate collections such as Adobe, and the permanent collection of the Triton Museum. She has had multiple solo exhibits in the South Bay, Los Angeles and New York, as well as being included in at least seventy group shows. She relocated from the San Francisco Bay Area to the Mid-Hudson in New York in 2012.
Her work provides artistic statement pieces and bold, unique imagery. It is on-point with the trend toward incorporating graffiti based and true organic textures into products. She will be showing a small, select grouping from her large library of imagery. She is looking for design collaboration on any number of projects and licensing her work for special products.
