Artist working in drawing and hand drawn animation, working out of the ACAVA studio in West London
Biography
Epoh Beech studied as a fine artist in Florence, at Cheltenham Art School and Chelsea College of Art. She has an MA from the University of Hertfordshire and works out of the ACAVA studios in West London.
She has completed five major series of works, each follow a journey, tell a story, illustrate a particular poem or Jacobean “Masque”. Each has been exhibited either in London, the UK or internationally. The work is strongly influenced by the narrative force and the quest for the sublime through the balance of colour and light most evident in the work of 15th Italian Renaissance and German Romantic painters.
The recent series in animated drawing explores the relationship between still images, moving images and music. Each work in these series examines the internal world and the transformative journey of the unconscious.
The Masque of Blackness (2018), Beech’s second animated drawing was exhibited with the related drawings at Gallery 46, Whitechapel, London and monumentally projected onto The Royal National Theatre Flytower, as part of The Thames Festival Totally Thames 2018.
