Curator’s Statement by Maxim Schmidt
Mandy Beatrice’s work encompasses a specific type of mania forged from the mundane; her explosive palette and dedication to abstraction turn everyday shapes and objects into a fantastic whirlwind of color and pattern. “brio” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “enthusiastic vigor” - an energy Beatrice unapologetically adopts into her work.
Mandy Beatrice was born and raised in Naugatuck, CT, but relocated to Chicago, IL in the spring of 2018. A self-taught artist, Beatrice has immersed herself in both oil and acrylic painting over the last three years.
