Phoebe Webb

Exploring tactile terrain dispersed amongst nipaluna/ Hobart, my work aims to depict the rugged organic forms found within the landscape and the ridged mark making of the enduring stolen land of lutriwita (Tasmania). In contrast to the durable rough surfaces of trees and rock formations I combine fluid acrylic paints, delicate paper materials, photo-scans and frottage mark making to depict these monumental earthly figures and their textured skin.

Conceiving forms from the earth, trees and rocks as bodies, is a common theme throughout my art practice that relates to notions of constructed bodies and explores the landscape as a frame.
