Bobbye Fermie (b. 1990, Amsterdam, NL) practice is an ongoing response to themes of isolation, personal boundaries and social anxiety. Fermie's practice explores the archetypal portrayal of interiors and homes within culture and storytelling, such as theatre sets and advertisement. Her work explores the juxtaposition between the public and private space and process internal emotions through the use of sets and scenes. Fermie's watercolour paintings and collages depict imagined worlds that are often inhabited by fictional, shapeshifting characters. The viewer is invited into the world of these characters and glimpses a scene of ambiguity following imagined intimate moments. Narratives are often slightly obscured or one layer removed from the viewer, giving them a feeling of separation or voyeurism.

Fermie completed the post graduate degree ‘The Drawing Year’ at the Royal Drawing School, London in 2015 after completing her bachelor in Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium. Fermie has participated in several artist residencies including Porthmeor Studios (2021, 2023) and Hafod Residency (2016).
