Emily Dober (b 1992) is an emerging painter and illustrator whose figurative works centre on the female form as portrayed in magazines and advertisements. Working from a gently drawn pencil or ink outline, her strong sense of composition and carefully considered layers of colour gives her work a distinctive, highly personalised style. One of her principal concerns is analysing the movements and gestures of the female body in dance. While these works appear as abstract studies, they are also carefree and joyous. Dober has worked at Arts Project since 2011. She had her first solo exhibition in 2017 and been curated into numerous national group exhibitions. Her work is held in private collections Australiawide.
