Shan Crosbie is a young painter from Canberra, Australia. Shan studied and exhibited at Estudio Nómada Art School in Barcelona, Spain in 2011-2012, and has exhibited multiple times at the Artists’ Shed in Queanbeyan, NSW.
Almost exclusively utilising the human figure in her paintings, her work comes from emotional, personal and at times, sentimental origins. Through honesty and vulnerability in her work, she invites the viewer into her world. Shan’s work aims to entice the viewer in through their emotional curiosity, shared experience, and feeling.
“…so that form could pass directly from the eye to the stomach without going through the brain.” – Francis Bacon
