Boddy interprets flavour as a colour, envisions texture as a mark and translates forms onto canvas.
Phoebe Boddy’s work is stimulated by food and flavour, whereby she uses the process of painting to explore the connections between the two creative fields of Food and Art.
After graduating from Loughborough University in 2017, Phoebe has been represented by the London based Art rental and sales company, ARTIQ. Boddy has been featured by the likes of FAD Magazine, Ideel Art, Sheer Luxe, Visionary Projects and The Other Art Fair. In 2021 she exhibited in a group show at Katherine Richards Art Gallery, was selected as a nominee for the Kate Bryan Art Prize and was also the winner of the Mall Galleries Figurative Art Now open call and will exhibit there in 2022 alongside two other award winning artists.
Boddy is also the co-founder of Palette, a unique dining experience which focuses on the sensory connections between Food & Art. The concept is a creative experience whereby the paintings exhibited, complement the dishes served. She has hosted Palette events at the likes of The Koppel Project on Oxford Street and The Old Bank Vault.
Boddy stores personal recollections and experiences that she has encountered with food, and recreates these memories in the studio through abstract interpretative painting. Boddy’s paintings are always titled after, or related to, food and are comprised of energised brushstrokes; infused with a bold use of colour and form. Boddy interprets flavour as a colour, envisions texture as a mark and translates forms onto canvas. Through her large paintings, Boddy encourages the viewer to consider food for what it truly is – a work of art, for all the senses!
