Whitney McVeigh Biography

At a moment when figurative art is enjoying something of a renaissance, Whitney McVeigh has produced a series of works that combine the expressive immediacy of gestural abstraction with the psychological depth of portraiture. The ‘Heads’ paintings are mainly executed in acrylic inks on paper or canvas and are not portraits in the conventional sense, but adopt certain formal aspects of portraiture merely as a starting point for a more inventive take on human individuality. McVeigh has spoken of her interest in what she calls “the internal landscape: our make-up,” seeing her ‘Heads’ as representative of “a frailty beneath the complex surface of us all.” Like the sculpted heads of Elisabeth Frink, McVeigh’s ‘Heads’ paintings allude to the tension between universal human frailty and the totemic qualities of the human image that are central to ancient and ‘primitive’ art.

Recommended Reading
American artist Whitney McVeigh explores the human identity and how we collectively link together through our objects, cultures and philosophies. During her artist-in-residencies and travels around the world, she has collected countless objects. Yellowed pictures in cracked frames, books eroded by time, rusty metal cases and numerous curiosities; each object possessing a lost memory and is part of our common history. Her installations display pockets of history via found objects; a similarity observed in the artist’s works on paper that are psychological landscapes rooted in her personal life, thoughts and memories. McVeigh’s visual poetry is expressed in a multitude of mediums from installations and videos to found objects and works on paper; works which are highly autobiographical.
