Born in 1976 in Los Angeles, where she lives and works.
The classic subjects are jostling and falling all over one another in Whitney Bedford’s painting. Battles and landscapes grab most of the attention, but a predilection for disasters also persists. Most of her paintings indeed represent shipwrecks, which the artist evokes as a metaphor for American soldiers’ departure for Iraq. Her work swings between images of destruction and redemption, and the young artist likes to speak of her art as an output of votive offerings, allegories of chaos and crisis that are nevertheless pertinent in today’s world.
