"Debbie Lawson’s magic Persian carpet fits the enchanting role almost perfectly. These are sculptures in a dream state of metamorphosis in which the tame and domestic comes to life. The 2D rug surface, hung vertically on the gallery wall like a treasure, is inhabited by a half-obscured sculptural menagerie of almost mythical wildlife: a looming hunter’s trophy of a bear, a fox getting up to urban mischief, a flock of seagulls caught in flight like ornamental ducks. The heady incense air of Arabian Nights seeps in as one feels seduced into playful reverie. Anything that infiltrates the safe realms of the family home with hints of unpredictable and uncontrollable spirit is bound to transport us directly back to childhood daydreams."
