Artist Film: Phoebe Unwin

4 October 2011 By

The Contemporary art Society catches up with artist Phoebe Unwin to discuss recent developments in her practice at Wilkinson Gallery in London

Phoebe Unwin’s paintings shift between figuration and abstraction creating a personal register of images and marks: observations of reality, constructs of memory or indirect references to particular places and events. Unwin teases and collages images, shapes and forms together in pastel, pencil and acrylic creating elusive, colourful abstract paintings imbued with a darker, often sinister psychological narrative. Her work has recently been exhibited at Wilkinson Gallery, London (solo) and British Art Show 7, Nottingham, London, Glasgow and Plymouth. She is represented by Wilkinson Gallery.
