Demi Overton

Artist

Nottingham, UK

Fine artist Demi Overton creates sculptural works on paper. Her wall art explores drawing and mark making, using pinpricking, sewing and painting. Landscape is her inspiration, starting with maps and aerial imagery focused on mountains ranges, canyons and deserts.

Demi Overton

All my pieces start with me scrolling around on Google Earth. I search for colour, texture and composition in each landscape. I then create a drawing, pulling the contours and shapes that will become the final artwork.

Born in Nottingham, Demi studied Fine Art at Newcastle University and graduated in 2015.

Maps provide Demi with visual information which she translates into pared-down drawings where features of the landscape are only hinted at. She adds a layer of watercolour evocative of the area's particular terrain before carefully pinpricking thousands of tiny holes into the paper with a needle. The texture the holes create transforms the paper into a mesmerising 3D terrain that changes and evolves when placed in different light. Her works focus on places that she has visited, mainly in North America and the UK, and the areas which offer interesting shapes, such as mountains, deserts and canyons.
