Christabel MacGreevy is based in London. She studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London and Ecole de Beaux Arts, Paris before completing her Postgraduate diploma from The Royal Drawing School, London.
Christabel is an interdisciplinary artist concerned with myth, love, and memory explored through folklore, art history and personal mythology. She uses storytelling and an idiosyncratic iconography to express what we may struggle to say in words; identity, masculinity, femininity, and what it is to experience the human condition, with its complexities, joys, miseries, furies and madness. Working in paint, print, sculpture, and textiles, with a practise that centers in drawing, MacGreevy considers the concept of performance and ritual to be present in her drawing practise. Drawing every day, she uses the primitivity of mark making as the simplest means of self expression and movement flow from the mind into the tangible world via paper.
Recent exhibitions she has participated in include; a solo show, Glut, at LAMB Arts in Mayfair, London (2018); a solo presentation at Drawing Now Art Fair, Cob Gallery, Paris (2019); Falico Magico? Lamb Arts, São Paulo, Brazil (2018); Art Bo, Lamb Arts, Bogotá, Colombia (2018); Juicy Fruit, curated by Antonia Marsh, New York (2017) and Best of the Drawing Year, Christies, London (2017). Her work has been featured in AnOther Magazine, iD, Dazed, It’s Nice That, LOVE Magazine and The Evening Standard. She participated in an artist talk at Frieze 2019.
