An emerging Devon based artist has been given a first time opportunity to exhibit work alongside nine artists of international calibre at White Moose.
Annalie Grabey , who is currently studying for a BA in Fine Art at Petroc University, Devon, will show images from her first body of work The Aviary Series as part of the high profile exhibition Masquerade, showing at White Moose‘s gallery space in the historic pottery district of Barnstaple, North Devon, until Sat 31st August.
Born in 1992, Annelie Grabey has always had an interest in drawing and looking at art. She credits her grandfather, who encouraged her to draw and with whom she shared a fascination with birds, as her greatest inspiration. The Aviary Series takes its inspiration from the movements of birds and research Grabey did on Victorian spirit photography. Developing the work was also an exploration of her relationship with her grandfather, and her experience of his death.
White Moose owners Julie Gavin and Stella Levy said: “We aim to bring work by high calibre artists to the region, whilst at the same time provide a platform for an exciting young local artist such as Annalie Grabey. We were very impressed with her photographs when we came across her work in the Petroc College degree show and we knew instantly she would be perfect for Masquerade.”
Masquerade is a curatorial collaboration with High House Gallery, Oxon.
