Visual Artist: Painting
Zoe Beaudry (b. 1991) is an artist from East Lansing, Michigan, specializing in oil painting with an emphasis on the figure. Her practice examines the dissolution of personal identity through disturbance to the boundaries of the self such as bodily changes, spiritual experiences, and online avatars.
Zoe received her BA in studio art from Kalamazoo College in 2014 and her MFA from The Glasgow School of Art in 2018. She has shown work internationally in the US, UK, Israel, and Australia, at venues including Piano Nobile Kings Place (London), Mall Galleries (London), The Zhou B Art Center (Chicago), and Chicago City Hall. She has held art workshops for youth in Tulkarem, Palestine, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and Kalamazoo, Michigan.
In 2017, Zoe was shortlisted as a finalist for the biennial Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize in London and for the Lethbridge 10,000 Small Scale Art Award in Brisbane, Australia. In 2018, she won first place in Exibit Fine Art Center and Gallery’s National Juried Competition, and in 2019 was featured in the annual FBA Futures exhibition at Mall Galleries.
Zoe was recently featured in the 2019 season of Sky Portrait Artist of the Year on the Sky Arts Network, and completed a residency at Kriti Gallery in Varanasi, India in March 2019.
Recent publications include Aesthetica Magazine, Creative Quarterly Magazine, Wotisart Magazine, Dreamers Magazine, and the cover of Vincent Perrone’s poetry collection, Starving Romantic.
