Artist Type Emerging
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.
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.
Born and raised in Wollongong, NSW, Phoebe's developing passion for fine art and other creative processes begun in her years studying at a performing arts high school in her hometown. Phoebe has recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts student at the National Art School in 2020, majoring in painting. During her degree, Phoebe has been commissioned by Wollongong City Council for a work to be displayed in the Ethyl Hayton Light Box walk, as well as participating in group shows. Since completing her degree, Phoebe has been in emerging artist group shows in Wollongong and Sydney, and sold many works alongside these shows.
