Zoe is a British Figurative Painter, living and working in Cornwall.
Her subject matter is often women, children and animals.
Theatrical costumes and settings present a world in which she brings together fragments from different time frames and a very personal narrative.
She says “…As a child I had strong bonds with animals. This has never left me. Through my imagery, I like to identify and investigate those intense relationships . I often invest my own psycho / physical qualities in the figure, sometimes the animal. It is the different kinds of friendship between the two that makes me wonder, the discovery and use of power in these relationships, the simplicity and complexity of a moment, the transitory nature of our lives , this is all part my narrative.
‘Bathers with a turtle’. 1908.
I came across this beautiful and tender painting today in a book on Matisse, and thought I would share it with you. It hangs in Saint Louis Art Museum.
I hope that you have had a great Bank Holiday, bathing , feeding a turtle or however you have spent your time …….
