Three plagues

Miles Debas

15 x 20 cm, ink on paper, 2020 

Miles Debas makes paintings with rich surfaces and surprising imagery. Inspirations for his subject matter are as likely to come from oddly memorable moments of people and places as they are from the subtle intrigue of an unresolved pattern. Miles weaves together elements of Cubism and Fauvism with a more graphic, contemporary handling of space that results in playfully idiosyncratic paintings that display clear admiration for the great Modern painters.
