Bella McGoldrick is an Australian artist, currently living in New York City. She's currently represented by Tappan Collective. Her realism works on paper are made up of dynamic and curated subject matter, usually floating in the white space, reflecting used and pre-adored objects. She uses color pencils to create these works, often taking the artist 60 hours per piece, that can at first appear photographic. By playing with scale and composition, these items to which McGoldrick finnesses over enable her subjects to breath on the walls to which they’re hung. A depth is created where there was just white space, and the stories of these previously loved and handled objects leave the viewer to question “Whom did they belong to?”
