Trudy Good

Born in: 1967

United Kingdom

Born in Hampshire, Trudy Good spent her younger years exploring and romanticising the beauty of figurative painters work such as Rembrandt, Richter, Sargent, Degas, Giacometti and Bacon. From an early age she was drawn to the worlds of these artists and of the Pre-Raphaelites, where a subtle, supernatural beauty seems to be hiding under the breath of the human form; worlds where something beyond our natural perception is present. Her use of charcoal and limited colour in selected areas is inspired by the haunting quality of antique photographs and monochrome qualities of Grisaille. 'Grisaille has a mysterious quality to it, and that mysterious quality is also hopefully carried into the way I will treat the human form. The pictures become a living, breathing thing to me when the fabric only is in colour and the charcoal is quiet. It seems to me that this use of an adaptation of Grisaille, against the punctuation of colour can give the sense of a very surreal space and unnatural quality and depth within the work'. 'The sheer beauty of a single line, the way that light plays on her hair, the feelings conveyed by her body language in a single unguarded moment- these are things that inspire me time and time again. Sometimes a sense of peace, sometimes melancholy, the million different emotions that make up human nature, every one interests and inspires me’.
