Deb Hoy


Location: London, UK

A british sculptor with an interest in ecological issues, Deb Hoy has created large-scale temporary interventions in public spaces and landscapes across the UK and USA, including Central Park in New York and the South Bank Centre, London. With a BA from Chelsea College of Art and Design (2003) and an MFA from The University of Pennsylvania (2008) Deb Hoy has spent over 10 years refining her practice and communicating ecological issues with student and community groups. Previous solo exhibitions include 'Glimmers' at ArtSpace, London, 'Conductor' at Norwich Arts Centre and 'Purge to Flow' at Arnold, New York City.

Deb Hoy is currently exploring new avenues in drawing and printing with a view to capturing the transience of nature and the constant change/decay of natural materials.
