Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The inspiration came from a photograph in 1968 Vogue, of Eduardo Costa’s ‘Gold ear’ sculpture.

The title of Costa’s surrealist sculptures ‘Fashion Fiction 1’ and the photograph in Vogue, had that 60s science fiction aesthetic. I had the urge to paint a woman in blue and I thought this image would be interesting to use.

I didn’t have a finished idea in mind for this painting before starting. I had a rough colour palette and envisioned a woman with sculptural features and a ‘perfect’ profile. The decision to make the painting landscape was made later on, as the painting developed I found that the fluid pooling of ink round the neck reminded me of Marlene Dumas’ compositions in her mortuary series. I thought this was an interesting and evocative idea. I really enjoyed painting this and it felt like a breakthrough for me, proving to be the inspiration for my following Isadora Duncan inspired series titled "Mother".

Artist Profile

Born: 1988

Hometown: Billericay

Based in: Chelmsford

Amy Beager (b. 1988) lives and works from her studio in Chelmsford, UK. She obtained a National Diploma in Art & Design (Distinction) in 2007 and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Nottingham Trent University in 2010. Beager has recently been selected as a winner for the Delphain Gallery open call 2020 and started exhibiting her work in London last year. Beager's work was recently acquired by Soho House collection and has been placed in multiple private collections throughout the UK, USA, Australia, Sweden, France, Canada and The Netherlands.

Beager's romantic figurative paintings explore themes of love, beauty, tragedy and self-fulfilment. The work predominantly features women, which are often inspired by figures found in fashion imagery and most recently greek sculpture and mythology. Beager uses the human form as a vessel for exploring emotion through a dramatic use of colour, and playful, expressive lines. Beager mostly uses traditional painting mediums such as Acrylic, oil and ink on paper or canvas.
