The Solitude by Bobbye Fermie
Bobbye Fermie’s practice is an ongoing internal response to themes of isolation, personal boundaries and social anxiety. Bobbye is interested in the archetypal designs of interiors and homes within theatre sets to express a juxtaposition between the public space and the private space. The watercolour paintings, explore an imagined world for a shapeshifting character that act as a way of processing these internal emotions through the use of these sets and scenes.
Bobbye completed the post-graduate ‘Drawing Year’ at the Royal Drawing School in 2015, after finishing her BA in Site Specific Art at the Royal Academy of Fine Art Antwerp in 2012. Her work has been exhibited throughout the UK and is currently held in several collections, including the Morritz-Heyman Collection, The Royal Collection and Soho House.
