ART EDIT PRESENTS A SELECTION OF SCULPTORS AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME. KIRSTY SIER WRITES.
Artist Beatrice Magalotti first started working in sculpture in the 1980s, when she first started forming her sleek, chimerical style – a modernised take on classical craftsmanship. It wasn’t until 2010 that the artist was able to dedicate more time to her work, since which time she has exhibited regularly, participated in several international residencies, and won a number of art awards. Primarily working in bronze, Beatrice embraces a wide range of media and methods to create her sculptural work. The artist has always enjoyed reading myths and legends and has been interested in exploring the role of woman and “women’s work”, and these preoccupations form the thematic foundation of her work. Her materials and methods reflect these themes – for example, through the incorporation of domestic skills such as crochet in the creation of bronze sculptures, and the use of organic materials such as antlers to form the wax shapes that are eventually cast into more permanent forms. The artist’s great skill is in combining these disparate influences into pieces that speak of their roots while forming something completely new, imbued with a mystery that comes from no one place in particular.
