Heather Tobias


I am primarily a mixed media figurative artist whose practice explores the arts, mythologies and histories of many cultures including Norse myths, Oceanic art and Mediaeval religious iconography. This enables me to create stylistic abstracted images and characters that recall allegorical traditions but exist in the present. The materials I choose can be dictated by their past existences as I like to scour car boot sales and recycle centres for unusual objects. My present enquiry is looking at groups of figures or tribes and how they confront the viewer.
