Phoebe Gander is a landscape, abstract and still life painter, inspired by the beautiful ocean, skies and landscape where she lives with her family in Wainui Beach on the east coast of New Zealand. Phoebe started her journey of self-discovery by carving out time for art to help her overcome severe panic attacks and anxiety. Nostalgia, solitude, vulnerability, texture and light are themes that reoccur in her art. During our conversation she talks about the importance of listening to the niggly voices, her love of light and shadow and her insatiable curiosity.
“There is something captivating about nature - it’s a never ending source of inspiration, ever changing with the seasons, the weather... in a time where everything is fleeting, where people want to consume things so quickly, these artworks for you to stand still and consider a moment caught in time. Living just across the road from the beach and with a backdrop of hills behind my home studio I can’t help but feel a strong connection to the landscape that surrounds me.”
