Beatrice Lettice Boyle is interested in Shelley Duvall, bumper stickers, witches/hags, choosing fabric and the seam between things. Recent work has appropriated imagery from 18th-century Shunshō woodblock prints, a 16th-century painting of the crucifixion attributed to Bosch, 16th century Brueghel landscapes, Disney’s 1937 Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Nicholas Roeg’s 1973 film Don’t Look Now and David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive. In Boyle’s installations, the references which span eras and high/low culture exist on a simultaneous plane.
Beatrice lives and works in London. She graduated with an MA in Painting from Royal College of Art in 2018, having previously completed her BA at Central Saint Martins (2004-2008). Recent exhibitions and projects include: That Is Real Moss On My Face. That Is Oatmeal And Dirt In My Hair Solo (Solo Exhibition) at AND/OR (London, 2019), El que busca, encuentra…y sigue encontrando (Online Group Exhibition, curated by Danny Baez) at White Columns (New York, 2020), Maenad (Solo Exhibition) at The Arcade Project (London, 2018), Barbarism Begins At Home (Group Exhibition) at The Manchester Contemporary (Manchester, 2017).
