Whitney Bedford is an American painter drawn to the high seas of shipwrecks and pirates. She sees her subjects as depictions of passion and despair and bases her paintings on old academic pictures of naval battles while capsizing a more conventional perspective. The element of chaos in her storytelling is what gives life to these seascapes – a chaos wrought through the message and the medium, as she says, “Sometimes it is the paint itself that sinks the images.”
