Oi, mate


Bella McGoldrick is an Australian artist. After spending the past six years in Chinatown, Manhattan—she’s recently moved to a small town in Southwestern Colorado. Currently represented by Tappan Collective01. Her realism works on paper are made up of dynamic and curated subject matter, usually floating in the white space, reflecting used and pre-adored objects. She uses color pencils to create these works, often taking the artist up to 200 hours per piece, that can at first appear photographic. By playing with scale and composition, these items to which McGoldrick finnesses over enable her subjects to breath on the walls to which they’re hung. A depth is created where there was just white space, and the stories of these previously loved and handled objects leave the viewer to question “Whom did they belong to?”

Bella does take on a limited number of commissioned artworks for private and commercial clients. There is a project minimum fee of $15,000.  If you would like to pitch an idea please contact hello@bella.gold02
