Paintings and Drawings
Zoë’s practice explores ambiguous, transitory spaces that we experience within our every day lives. Through the process of painting and drawing she is interested in creating a balance between abstraction and figuration to create an invented space that draws on her own imagination and literal places she has encountered.
In these new works she has used the motif of the window as a compositional device to explore the boundaries between exterior and interior space that see’s the works lay somewhere between landscape, interior and abstraction – or perhaps a combination of all three.
These recent works were created during two residencies Zoë undertook this year at Dumfries House in Scotland with the Royal Drawing School and Art Quarter Budapest, Hungary.
Zoë graduated from the University of Leeds in 2017. She is the winner of the FUAM Graduate Art Prize 2017. Previous exhibitions include ‘Paintings and Drawings’ the Emmaus Rooms, St Helen’s Church Wakefield, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition London, ‘Post-‘ We Are Projects Wakefield, The FUAM Graduate Art Prize, The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery Leeds.
Zoë lives and works in Wakefield.
