Lives and works Melbourne, Australia
Virginia Stobart, born in Australia from Greek and Cypriot heritage, studied and worked at Photographic Imaging College from 1999 until 2013. Stobart curated and collaborated while producing personal exhibitions. Stobart graduated in 2016 RMIT (Fine Arts) BA.
Her work is an investigation into identity and how it shifts and expands through migration. Greek myths, familial histories and symbolism are embedded in the work, incorporating video, photography, printmaking, painting and natural environments. The images are layered, abstracted, diffused, obfuscated, fragmented, projected and refilmed. Saturated colours, movement slowed and sounds composed to underscore the psychological space within the inner world.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
