Holy Bitch (Holly) Beach BA (Hons) Fine Art 2020

“My art is a world of mystery and dreams. Centered around exposing deep truths and taboo topics. It is a conversation with myself and allows me to express emotions and ideas in a healthy, productive way. It is a cathartic process, often revealing the subconscious. I search for the essence of someone’s truth. I use androgynous, disproportioned and skewed characters, with a lens of humour, and playful energy, they take on a naïve appearance that tells a narrative of either real or imagined experiences. I incorporate different material objects that express personality or themes. I explore the vulnerability and exposure of oneself in a chaotic world. A universe of pleasure and pain. My practice mainly consists of acrylic paintings and drawings made from oil pastels, pencil and markers, with the odd sculpture here and there.”
