We are thrilled to announce our representation of Zoe Grey. Zoe makes her JMG debut in our forthcoming group exhibition, Summer New, running 14 – 29 Jan, with a major solo exhibition to follow 21 Sep – 8 Oct. We are excited to work alongside Zoe in support of her outstanding practice!
Zoe Grey is an artist from Lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia. Working in the field of painting, as well as drawing, collage and ceramics, her work explores ideas of home, connection to place and the experience of landscape. She grew up on the remote Northwest coast of Lutruwita/Tasmania, in the raw and rugged environment of Marrawah, on Peeraper country. Her experience of that unique landscape and an ongoing, evolving connection to that place, informs a large part of her practice. Her work is also driven by engaging with new and unfamiliar places, exploring how connections are made through immersive experiences, holding painting as a tool to nurture and unpack relationships to place.
Zoe graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Tasmania, School of Arts and Media in 2018. With numerous solo exhibitions nationally, her work is held in private collections around the world and in the public collection of the Devonport Regional Gallery. Zoe was finalist in the 2022 TIDAL Tasmanian Art Award, the 2021 Hadley’s Art Prize and the 2021 Paddington Art Prize. She has undertaken artist residencies on King Island, Tasmania and at Arteles Creative Centre, Finland. She is currently based in Nipaluna/Hobart, working out of the Artist Run Initiative, Good Grief Studios.
