Lives and works in Ipswich, England
Bobby Forsythe is an English artist, curator, art technician, and art historian, residing in Ipswich, Suffolk. Throughout her career, she has explored and revisited the ideology of how the beholder experiences artworks. Her creations focus on the beholder’s interaction with installation art and transforming space by utilising both natural and artificial light. Forsythe’s practice specialises within the three-dimensional qualities of art, creating immersive environments to heighten the experience for the beholder. Her integration of light and shape is utilised to create the illusion of expansive space and shapely projections. 
Forsythe is the founder of the art collective, Supporting the Arts which was established in 2020. She is the curator for exhibitions that support local, international, and emerging artists. Supporting the Arts was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, she realised the impact the pandemic had on the arts and decided to host an online exhibition to support creatives within the U.K. After a great response from artists, Forsythe now hosts annual online exhibitions.
