Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Painting of a nymph-like girl throwing her arms in the air with an expression of revolt and of knowing. Part of the series titled "Mother" which is inspired by Isadora Duncan the pioneering modern dancer. Alluding to her youthful freedom of expression the body, arms and hair are painted in faux naive style. Her robe or tunic is painted with a transparency correlating to Duncan's infamous sheer costume.

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 collections and has been placed in multiple private collections throughout the UK, USA, Australia, Taiwan, Sweden, France, Canada and The Netherlands. Beager's work is currently on display at Saatchi Gallery as part of the group exhibition 'Antisocial Isolation' curated by Delphian Gallery.

"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
