More about Beatrice Hasell-McCosh
Beatrice’s current work is a series of monumental paintings and a central concept for her is of work presented in parts. This motif began after a trip to Japan in 2018 where she discovered kintsugi which is the idea of beauty in imperfection or in broken elements. This has been significant in her thinking since then and it is seen in a number of her works where the different elements of the triptych or diptych are uneven. As a twin she is naturally attracted to multiple parts that make up a whole. Her influences are wide ranging, from music to Disney productions set design, comic book strips, 1950’s adverts, Chagall’s stained glass, the freezing of a moment in poetry and the traditions of tapestry and wallpaper making.
