Bea is essentially concerned with the application of paint onto canvas, her relationship to it and the dynamics there in. She is concerned with energy, movement and memory. Bea tends to work on several paintings concurrently creating a series that relate and converse with each other. Her work is mostly large scale as she considers the very physicality of her work to be vital to her practice. At times her work may be considered challenging or confrontational.
Sketch books and working drawings are a vital part of her creative process allowing freedom of mark making without self consciousness. The fluid energy created through these drawings are crucial to her practice and helps her stay connected to the paintings that she is working on, helping to move them forward in their development. Through the rapidity and repetitiveness of the mark making, the element of movement through time occurs. With the working process within my sketch books, comes the realisation that drawings do not have to be contained and that they can, like the paintings, have a very physical and emotional presence.
Bea has exhibited widely across the U.K and abroad with paintings held in both the private and corporate sector. Previous Clients include: The Corinthia Hotel, London., Reuters International, Logica (Microsoft),Central Loop Hotel, Chicago, U.S, The Dokkae Project: sponsored by the King of Saudi
