Beatrice Carlson


Beatrice Carlson originally studied oil painting and it has given her a understanding of layers and transparency that she uses in her digital work. Her works are dramatic in scale, but Beatrice with with the smallest of details, adjusting the images pixel by pixel, her works often taking up to 300hrs to complete. She works from images from her collection of photographs taken over the last twenty years, choosing images that tell a story. Then, the image will inspire her to start painting, pairing with another image, to develop the story. She states, 'I am not a painter, I am not a photographer, I am a teller.'

Beatrice Carlson is an Auckland based New Media Artist originally from France.

Over the last decade Beatrice has been refining her digital based works as a proper painting technique. She says that the gesture is the same, as she uses a graphic palette with a pen like a brush. Her hand moves in a fluid, spontaneous
way embracing the space of the screen, her canvas.
Beatrice's work always starts with a photo, but she usually works with up to six to complete an image. She states 'It starts always with a photograph that will tell me a story. Then, the image will inspire me to work on a direction and I will start painting, blending with another image to complete the story.

She won the Pacific section at the 2012 Wearable Art Awards with her design “Marquise Rawahi.”
