Deborah Westmancoat is a contemporary painter based in Somerset, UK.  She has spent several years engaged in a long-term project looking at stages of transformation in classical alchemy in relation to the presence and movement of water found within the natural and built environment.  Alongside runs a parallel line of research questioning our subtle relationships to ‘place’ and ‘territory’.

Westmancoat exhibits frequently throughout the UK and internationally and was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2014, becoming an RWA Academician in 2019. 

During 2018 she represented the UK as part of the Ingruttati Palermo project and exhibition at the Manifesta 12 Biennale, Palermo, Sicily.
