Notes

"This is one of my rare still-lifes capturing Peonies in full bloom, in a vase that I painted and glazed. So it is a typical Beezy without being a typical Beezy painting! It is painted on a black velvet background, which for me illustrates very much the Archbishop's life of light within the darkness." –Beezy Bailey

Beezy Bailey is a South African artist who works in various media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, and ceramics. He has been a full-time artist for 30 years, with over 20 solo exhibitions in London, Johannesburg, and Cape Town, as well as numerous group shows around the world. He received a fine art degree from Byam Shaw School of Art in London in 1986. Bailey says he creates art “as a balm for a mad world — a corrective for our most lamentable human qualities, including a planet brutalized by extremes of wealth and poverty, environmental ignorance and negligence.” Bailey has exhibited in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and England. His work is represented in several art collections, including the David Bowie Art Collection, the Getty Family Collection as well as the Oppenheimer Art Collection.
