Beth Kennedy

Beth Kennedy

Hometown: Brisbane

Based in: Brisbane

Beth Kennedy lives and works in Brisbane and has a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the Australian National University. She has held six solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions. Beth is represented by Greenhouse Interiors and Anthea Polson Art, her work has appeared in Australian House & Garden, Belle magazine and The Age’s Melbourne Magazine.

The essence of Beth’s paintings is the dynamics of patterning. Even at their most colourful, there is a quiet and enigmatic beauty to her work.

Pattern, colour and composition all work together to present a snippet of an emotional narrative in the floating worlds she creates. She works intuitively with colour, at times allowing it to flow across the canvas in washes, and at others using it in bold opaque area. Amongst this, wavering patterns move in and out of focus, eventually finding their place and adding depth and beauty to the paintings.

Each of Beth's paintings is the result of a sustained process of transcription: from sketches, to watercolour, to paint on canvas.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

My happy place is a big selection of premixed colours sitting in tubs just waiting to be used, hot coffee and music playing in my headphones as I disappear into a painting. Pattern, colour and composition all work together to present a snippet of an emotional narrative in the floating worlds I create. I works intuitively with colour, at times allowing it to flow across the canvas in washes, and at others using it in bold opaque areas. Amongst this, wavering patterns move in and out of focus, eventually finding their place and adding depth and beauty to the paintings.
