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".

"On the wave of a surge in demand and re-appreciation of figurative art, Amy Beager’s paintings emerge as a fresh new voice within this genre.  Her bold and graphic paintings reimagine mythological characters through an emotive and fluid language. Predominantly featuring women, the figures are often inspired by fashion imagery, which are re-worked into modern-day deities, transcending their stature and presence.  The artist presents an imaginative and alternate reality, using the human form as a vessel to explore emotions and hidden narratives through a dramatic use of colour and expressive lines. "- Offshoot Arts
