Sustaining A Practice Artists of Repute
Artists talk about what keeps them going
Phoebe Unwin, Painter, British Art Show 7, Hayward Gallery 2011 (dates tbc)
âUnwin references and explores a world we all experience visually, verbally and sensationally: a figure infects and affects its space, as if thoughts are made into things; a grubby patterned Underground seat blocks a view; the shape of a head is formed by a uniformed edge of toothpaste-like stripes; pictures of notepaper become a layered collected mass of white on whites.'
Phoebe Unwin was born in Cambridge in 1979 and lives and works in London. She studied at Newcastle University and Slade School of Fine Art. Recently her work was exhibited as part of the British Art Show 7, a Hayward Gallery National Touring Exhibition.
