Josie McCoy Biography

Josie McCoy captures the here and the now to subvert the very nature of the 21st century’s celebrity culture. Her beautifully created works owe nothing to the supposed fifteen minutes clutched at by those on the periphery of fame. McCoy celebrates the virtual, those who do not exist, suspending our disbelief and drawing us in.

Laura Oldfield Ford writes about McCoy’s work: “To visit the parade of ghostly perfection in Josie McCoy’s exquisitely rendered paintings is to witness the markers of an interior landscape. We are hostages to these faces for they cannot be erased from the minds eye, to confront them is to experience a sense of unheimlich, the uncanny, I may not be able to name them but I carry the index of their image with me.” “The faces of the subjects, almost always women, are the smoothed over and unblemished masks of the global videodrome. There is something of the chimera about them, a haunting. They loom up from the canvas, floating glassy eyed, impervious to the world they cast their gaze upon. These are the blank stares of the undead, self renewing, waiting for the fantasies of the viewer to be projected onto them. They are the archetypes of female beauty in a shimmering heterotopia, they persist as a tide of eternal disappointment in what we are and what we aspire to be." “The seamlessness inherent in these paintings imbues them with a dream like, almost Lynchian quality. What we are being given is a sequence of glimpses, the imagination is left to construct the context. We are left to draw on mediated references by mining a store far more extensive than we might have imagined. These images seem familiar precisely because they have been settled within our psyches for so long. The spectacle does not carry us along, we carry it, it becomes suffused in our own subjectivity until we cannot disown it. It is no longer a glowing phantasmagoria that bewitches us but something deeply implanted and internalized, an inescapable part of ourselves.” [Laura Oldfield Ford, 2008]

McCoy is graduate of Central St Martin’s College in London. She has exhibited widely in London and throughout Europe. She currently lives and works in Valencia, Spain.
 
Recommended Reading
Through a lens of luminosity and atomised colour, Josie McCoy invites viewers beyond the cinema screen, and into a dream-like place where perfect, unblemished faces stare back knowingly. Lynchian femme fatales, such as Dorothy Vallens and Audrey Horne contrast the apparently more mainstream protagonists, although behind the airbrushed surfaces, these are all intriguing females. The actresses she depicts are usually recognisable in an instant, and even those that are less so are strangely familiar through their pose or emotional language. Six lithographic editions from the series ‘American Dream’ show a few of McCoy’s most inspirational women in roles which have influenced the artist in her practice.
