Gallery 2022 – Isabell Tan



Phantasia is a collection that draws upon the nolstagia of our rich childhood imaginations. The collection explores the memories of long-forgotten places that only children may enter, drawing upon our intrinsic connections to nature in our youth and expanded sense of wonder and imagination. A form of escapism, daydreams and fantastical worlds of boundless possibilities and magic reigns freely. Phantasia evokes a sense of childlike wonder through abstract form and a rich palette.
