Lives and works in Ipswich, England
Bobby Forsythe is the founder of the collective Supporting the Arts, established in 2020 in response to the pandemic, and curates annual exhibitions that support both local and international artists. She graduated from studying Fine Art at the University of Suffolk and holds an MA in Art History and Theory, achieved at the University of Essex.
She has been a practicing artist since 2016 and has taken part in numerous curatorial and collaborative projects with fellow artists mainly within East Anglia. Bobby has worked with SPACE, Brick Lane Gallery, Artcore, IP1 Magazine, Art Habens, and independent curators. Her professional artistic practice and research specialise in human interaction and experience. Deriving inspiration from 20th-century philosophers, Bobby has created interactive-immersive light installations, exploring how the beholder experiences unusual spaces. She wrote a thesis conversing about what the art object is in essentially an objectless space, utilising 1960 art examples and referencing Michael Fried.
Forsythe is affiliated with the University of Suffolk, where she currently works as an art technician, and the University of Essex after completing her Art History MA. Alongside her creation, she interviews artists for local magazines, takes part in art podcasts, and writes art theory blog posts.
