when animal sculptures and persian rugs come together to create animal art

people often say that art is best when it is either in a 2 dimensional form or a 3 dimensional form.

but what happens when art is a mixture of both – the 2nd and the 3rd dimension? is the experience any better? or should it stick to the traditional?

that’s what scottish artist debbie lawson wanted to change. her work mixes the two dimensions to give the viewer something that is both surprising and intriguing.

she merges animals and persian rugs to create her pieces of art. she starts of with building the animal shapes using chicken wire and masking tape and then covering it up with persian rugs. the result is an illusion that looks as if the animal or bird is emerging from the rug.

two of debbie’s animal sculptures are set up as permanent exhibits in london’s town hall hotel. you can also follow her work on her website or on her instagram handle.
