Blayne Beacham Macauley is a painter in Atlanta, GA. She studied Plein Air oil painting in Venice Italy at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica and Studio Art at Boston University. She uses symbols to create abstract paintings, which represent exact moments in her life.
Her work has been featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Southern Living and Southern Seasons Magazine. "My artwork explores the idea of the human soul. As a soul travels through life it changes. It grows, learns, and is damaged by life events. Certain moments in time can permanently impact a soul."
"My work explores those certain moments that shaped and defined my life. Each impactful moment is distilled down to one image (basket, swing set, kite, man with a crown). With those symbols I've created a visual language that I can use in different ways and allow them to interact with each other. Those interactions represent the malleability of memory, and how my current life perspective impacts my perspective on the events of my past."
