Tori Beeche

Tori Beeche lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. She graduated in 2015 from the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts with a BFA (First Class Honours) and gained her MFA (First Class Honours) in 2020. Her work has been included in the finalist exhibitions for the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award (2021), New Zealand Painting & Printmaking Award (2020), and the Sunshine Coast Art Prize (2018). Recent exhibitions include Spaces of Synchronicity at Malcolm Smith Gallery, Auckland (2021) and RESIST at Allpress Studio Gallery, Auckland (2021).

Tori’s paintings are formed through a process of extracting poetic moments from historical archives and encoding them with an alternative reality, asking viewers to consider the value of nostalgic reflection.
