Faye Dobinson



In recent years, shadows have emerged as a strong thematic focus for Faye Dobinson (Penzance). Her fluid serpentine figures give form to the movements and rhythms of her body. Just as our shadows yield to our surroundings, these beguiling beings weave inwards and outwards, their darkness and depth enticing us into their dance. Drawing-upon a wide range of reference points from folklore to dream analysis, Faye’s shadow works are at once striking and surreal, yet also tender and relatable.
