Biography

"Zoe's work feels a little dangerous and unknowable (like a night time ocean), but also kinetic and joyful."

J.Blackwell

In Zoe's words...

The physical process of creating something new inspires me. My work involves visual manipulation, whether that is creating depth that isn’t there, or mind-bending shifts in perspective. The themes I work with are those of human existence, infiniteness, magic, creation and destruction. That can be capturing an illusion of a moment in time (a memoristic view), attempting to capture something we cannot immediately see (oceanic depths or the cosmos) or creating cellular structures of unknown worlds, landscapes or beings.
