Debra Bustin has made mural paintings, theatre designs, sculptures, book illustrations and posters. Her work is always vibrantly colourful and busy. But despite the whimsy, the gloss and colour and springing life, there is an edge of terror in Bustin's work: screaming mouths, spikey hands, clutched and bound, menacingly humanoid trees, birds with sharp squawking beaks, and the jagged aggressiveness of zig and zag.
