Lost Landscapes Recreated

Lost Landscapes Recreated

Fine Art prints from water colour originals; well researched artist’s reconstructions of landscapes which have been lost forever due to time, development or accidental or natural change. 

Every picture produced will be based as far as possible on visual information that is available from past and present, including old and new photos, prints and old maps.

Where there are gaps in available material, it may be necessary to resort to ‘informed artist’s licence’, as is the case with the paintings on show.

Up to 150 hours work is invested in the research, draft sketches and painting of each original, and these are not for sale, but can be available for exhibition purposes.

If you have any source material which could be of interest to Debbie, and would be willing to lend it for scanning, please let us know as it would be gratefully received! (email contact at the bottom of this page).

Debbie Flack

Debbie produces limited edition prints from her own water colour originals; well researched artist’s reconstructions of landscapes which have been lost forever due to time, development or accidental or natural change.

Debbie started painting again in 2006 after a thirty year break! As a student she was accepted on a fine art/painting degree course at Newport college of art but on arrival there found herself removed to the sculpture course. Unable to alter the situation she transferred to the Art in Education course at Dartington where she began to take an interest in textiles, and has worked as a fashion and textile designer since completing the Dartington Diploma and subsequent Certificate of Education at Rolle College.

As a student, Debbie’s painting interests were always towards landscapes and her style began to develop in a traditional manner.  During the last decade the ‘Lost Landscapes’ idea has been evolving; inspired by her own fascination with images of the past and the motivation that she can recreate an image that it is no longer possible to record with a camera.  All her works are created from old and new images, archive records, old maps and help from knowledgeable people; the information gathered then combined to create a new, complete image; often a panorama. Each original work takes up to three months to complete, while research is ongoing towards future projects

Debbie and her husband Robin Cox have owned a sucession of ginger cats between them over the years, and some of these appear from time to time in the pictures.
