Fiona Van Oyen, a Christchurch based artist, completed a Master of Fine Arts degree, conferred with distinction, from the Dunedin School of Art in 2017. Fiona originally studied at the School of Fine Arts, Canterbury University.
Whilst her imagery is drawn from Christchurch landscapes, the breaking down of elements and the mapping of these at scale, transforms the reading of these works from a physical place to a psychological exploration of our perception of self in the context of place.
