Current practice-based research includes the development of a series of comics that explore the potential for melodramatic and ambiguous visual narratives and play with comic and cinematic forms. The stories are shaped around ‘interruptions’ of visual spectacle, surface texture and natural phenomena.
Zoe is developing a series of narrative-based drawings that explore mythic and spectacular iconography such as particular representations of landscapes, interiors, natural phenomena, the universe and imagery associated with cinema, music videos and glamour.
She is also developing a series of images that relate to a short story by Anna Kavan and reinterpret pop imagery from the 1960s.
Zoe’s current academic research focuses on theories of the image, spectacle, romanticism, and myth.
