Debra Olin examines personal fears, moral struggles, and issues
identity. Working in either canvas or muslin, she first cuts out
a pattern and then prints the pieces as monotypes. Later they are
sewn or glued together.
“My grandfather was a tailor and I'm sure that this is where my love of fabric comes from. However, unlike Papa Benny, I am not interested in making functional clothing. I use garments as a metaphor for the body. The coat becomes a thick hide, a shelter, a vantage point from which to safely view the world and one's relationship to it.”
She received her M.F.A. from Massachusetts College of Art., and has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad. Her work is in many private and public collections including The Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
