Modern abstract painter, experimenting with bold pink colours that draw upon themes of the modern womxn experience through nonrepresentational imagery, text and non-traditional materials that manifest social environments.

  • About

    In Phoebe's art practice, she has been exploring lyrical abstraction, nurturing instinctual movement and creating natural forms drawn from themes of internal pain, both physical and emotional. Through experimentation of working primarily in oils, she has adopted the use of bold colours, particularly pinks, and nonrepresentational shapes to encapsulate her observations of her surrounding environment. Her love for the abstract-expressionist and lyrical abstraction periods and exploring new ways of creating, leads her into an open and raw direction in her practice, further developing and evolving physical elements in her paintings.
