Helen Beard, Sadie Laska, Boo Saville: True Colours

Three emerging painters exploring the possibilities of color

True Colours brings together the work of three emerging artists: Helen Beard (born 1971), Sadie Laska (born 1974) and Boo Saville (born 1980). Despite using paint in very different ways, the artists all share an interest in exploring the possibilities of color. Beard uses a vivid rainbow palette to create interlocking arrangements of bright primary color, which combine to describe explicit sexual encounters. Laska creates dreamlike compositions using paint and collage, evoking a rebellious post-pop aesthetic. Saville applies over 40 layers of paint to produce extraordinary large-scale abstracts, made up of flawlessly gradating shades. This fully illustrated book is available with three different cover designs and includes interviews with the artists by Polly Borland, Rachel Howard and Lizzi Bougatsos, plus essays by Michael Bracewell, Freire Barnes and Amie Corry, exploring the artists’ work within the broader context of the philosophy of color.


Sadie Laska's "Untitled (Palette Painting)" (2015) is reproduced from 'Helen Beard, Sadie Laska, Boo Saville: True Colours.'

Three emerging painters in 'True Colours'

Three emerging painters in 'True Colours'

Boo Saville's "Born with Two Faces" (2018) is reproduced from True Colours, Other Criteria's catalogue to Newport Street Gallery's recent three-person painting show with Saville, Helen Beard and Sadie Laska. In a published interview, Rachel Howard comments, "I read somewhere that you'd said that the figurative pieces were thoughts, and the abstracts are…" To which Saville responds, "…memories and emotions. I think the figuratives are trying to rationalize something. I was watching this program about how cave paintings were made—these people would go out in the world and they'd be hunting and watching animals, recording it in their heads, and then go into the cave and draw it. Then they would also do all of these patterns, and the patterns would maybe come because of the flickering torch light or something. And I kind of feel like it's the same thing, I feel like when I'm doing the abstract painting I'm in a cave, or I've gone into this other realm." continue to blog
