Constance Regardsoe

Constance Regardsoe is an emerging artist. She was born in Preston and is largely self taught
painter, developing her skills in oil paint instinctively. She began to exhibit professionally in 2020,
and she was selected for six major exhibitions, and won the prestigious Bath Society of Arts Grand
Prize and Young Artist Prize (the first time in the competition's 117 history that a recipient has
won both awards).
She was named one of the top 125 exciting contemporary painters by
Aesthetica in 2021, and by 2022 her work had entered private collections in the United Kingdom,
Germany, Qatar, and the United States. She has exhibited in London and New York and was invited
to Newfoundland to take part in the Pouch Cove residency program in August 2022, where
some of her resultant pieces are featured in the gallery’s winter exhibition.

Her work involves water and bodies in water, and the intense and intricate distortions captured in
fleeting moments. Constance is an avid wild swimmer, and seeks to use painting to convey the
feelings of swimming outdoors. She interrogates the physical body of her swimmers, both
celebrating it - showing it as a powerful tool that allows the figure to move with ease, but
simultaneously conveying its vulnerability and fragility when compared with the vastness of the
water surrounding it.
