Phoebe Scott is a Boston-based sculptor, who uses the human body as her main vehicle. Her work begins and ends at the fact that the human body is a living document. She believes that everything a person goes through and suffers physically and mentally draw their impact on their bodies. This story full of past experiences is what Phoebe tries to tell through her artworks, which are nothing but realistic depictions of human bodies blended with a bit of her imagination. She is particularly interested in exploring the way society views and treats the female body from its adult life until after giving birth and until it reaches senior age.

Phoebe pushes against the concept of the ideal body as it is shown in sculpture through history and throughout a lifetime, especially given that in our culture the ideal body seems to be the only one that is truly authorized.
