Phoebe New York in New York Magazine

Phoebe made The Cut!

“Who needs a man?” Phoebe asks in one image, wearing zebra heels and a pencil skirt. “Are you in charge of your love life?” she asks in another. In runway images she appears with exclamations like, “It’s MY style.” Her artwork often raises a playful eyebrow at the fashion industry while questioning beauty standards and feelings about love and gender.

Sold Magazine Attends Phoebe New York's Solo Debut

The Sold Crew came to see Phoebe's first solo show last week!

Phoebe's dark and funny explorations into love and life reflect creator Libby Schoettle’s vulnerability, raw emotions, and witty observations.

Her paper characters adorn many of New York's lampposts, mailboxes and walls; and she is admired for consistently getting her work up. You can always find a fresh Phoebe!

Amazingly for such a prolific artist, this is Phoebe New York's 1st solo show. It was a great feeling to be in a room full of her work after hunting it on the streets for years!

PhoebeNewYork at The Kitchen Benefit Auction 2017

This collage work depicts PHOEBENEWYORK, the alter-ego of artist Libby Schoettle. Created with a mix of found objects including vintage photographs, magazine clippings, or clothing, the work combines materials that have been owned and handled by others, incorporating their tactile qualities into works that find beauty in the supposed flaws of wrinkles, rips, or stains. Phoebe’s humorous and satirical observations about life and love mirror Schoettle’s own experiences and vulnerability. Her adventures can be seen throughout New York City in the form of stickers featuring the collages themselves, each depicting this now iconic round-faced woman with bobbed black hair, PHOEBENEWYORK. –Courtesy of The Kitchen
