  • About the work

Technique: acrylic, glosspaint, spraypaint, fineliner and graphite on canvas;

Year: 2020;

British artist Phoebe Boddy mobilizes abstract painting to express the emotional and sensual pleasures of food. Like the recipes that inspire her, Boddy’s gestural abstract compositions are layered and complex, blending a host of textures and colors. Specific food memories—such as Elderflower Bellini, It’s a Tea party, or Strawberry Laces—provide the titles as well as the color relationships for her pieces. For Boddy, consumption of both food and art should be an act not just of necessity, but of pleasure. 

About the Artists

1995 , United Kingdom

Phoebe Boddy is a British contemporary abstract artist whose painting practice is stimulated by food and flavor. She uses the process of painting to explore the connections between the two creative fields - Food and Art. Similarly to the recipes that inspire her, Boddy’s gestural abstract compositions are layered and complex. These works are always titled after (or related to) food and are easily recognizable for their energetic brushstrokes infused with bold use of color and form. Through painting, the artist interprets flavor as a color, envisions texture as a mark, and translates forms onto canvas. She studied at Loughborough University in England, where she earned her BA in Fine Arts. Together with Chef Jay Sharp, she founded Palette Dining, which hosts dining experiences that explore "the sensory connections between Food & Art."
