Montserrat College of Art is showcasing the artwork of Beatrice Modisett.
Beatrice utilizes highly physical processes both in and out of the studio to explore geologic phenomenon, personal histories, erosion as a means of creation and the systems humans create in an attempt to navigate, control and contain landscapes. Modisett earned her BFA in Painting from Montserrat College of Art in Beverly MA and her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond VA in 2016. She has had solo and group exhibitions at Maier Museum of Art (Virginia); Eastern Connecticut State University (Willimantic, CT); HallSpace (Dorchester, MA); Queens Museum (Queens, NY); and Present Company (Brooklyn, NY) among others. She has participated in residency programs around the world, most recently Palazzo Monti in Brescia, Italy. In 2020 she was nominated for a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant and was named by Artsy’s Alina Cohen as one of “11 Emerging Artists Redefining Abstract Painting”. Beatrice was a Fellow at Wave Hill’s Winter Workspace in Bronx, NY until COVID-19 required she vacate her studio.
