    Solo Exhibition @ Analog Diary

    Beatrice Modisett: Into a Kind of Quietness is on view May 18–June 16, 2024 at Analog Diary, 1154 North Avenue, Beacon, NY. Gallery hours are Friday–Sunday 12–6pm and by appointment. An opening reception for the artist will take place May 18 from 4–6pm.

    Analog Diary is pleased to announce Into a Kind of Quietness, an exhibition of recent works by Beatrice Modisett. Modisett's practice is guided by an abiding interest in the inherent tension, space, and overlap between generative and destructive forces; through this lens, Modisett explores themes relating to place, memory, systems, and material.

    Beatrice Modisett's process is driven by experience and exposure — specifically amid nature, on her heavily wooded, off-the-grid property in Summit, NY, where she spends periods of time sleeping outside, observing, exploring, and otherwise entangling herself with the place while gathering materials that ultimately comprise her work. Modisett's engagement with her chosen media directly reflects and sustains the overarching concerns through which she approaches art making: that is, that natural forces of destruction — e.g. fire, wind, and water — can simultaneously be means of creation.

  • Panel Discussion with Kaveri Raina

    I was thrilled to be in conversation with Kaveri Raina and Lydia Gordon on the occasion of my solo show "Feeding Sugar to the Stump" at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. You can watch the recorded conversation on YouTube.

    Painters Beatrice Modisett and Kaveri Raina both investigate the potential of material to convey meaning, the crevices between representation and abstraction and that which exists in the in-between. In this casual conversation they will discuss the role of drawing in their practices, the embrace of failure as a fruitful and generous space and the importance of work that happens outside the walls of the studio.

    Moderated by Lydia Gordon, Associate Curator for Exhibitions and Research at the Peabody Essex Museum and recent Montserrat Faculty.
