The Drew Friedman Art Place at the Westport Book Shop

Westport Book Shop is partnering with the Drew Friedman Community Arts Center to feature different local artists' work at the Book Shop every month.

Our featured artist for the month of May 2022 is Deb Robicheau

Deb is a visual artist, sculptor, painter, writer and screenwriter.  At the Book Shop, Deb is showing a variety of sculptural mixed media boxes from her recent “Tiny Boxes” series, created during the first two years of the coronavirus pandemic. 

 

The boxes incorporate art from comic books from the 1930s through the 1980s that Deb had been saving because she thought their art was interesting.  Said Deb, “Once the pandemic hit, I decided to sacrifice to the art and cut them up, to illustrate that value could be transferred into what was important in the current world.  The images and words were used to illustrate what we were going through in each of our sequestered spaces.  We were all in the same storm, but not all in the same boat.  We had the challenge to fit our joy and sorrows and love and loss and life and death into smaller and smaller spaces to try and stay safe.  That’s what the boxes symbolize to me.”

Deb currently serves as producer on the upcoming musical feature film "Out of My Comfort Zone" an anti-bullying coming-of-age independent film for teems.  Deb is a proud alumnus of California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles.  Deb and her family moved to Westport in 2010.  You can follow Deb on instagram at:  @debrobicheau

Deb Robicheau's artwork will be on exhibit at the Westport Book Shop through May 31, 2022.  All art on exhibit is available for purchase.
