Biography from Hammer Galleries:

Agnes de Bethune was born in Massachusetts in 1951. This artist, who has been drawing and painting since childhood, began exhibiting in New York during the early nineties. After years of moving around the country, she and her husband, the artist Thomas O'Flynn, bought a dilapidated building in Jersey City in the 1980s and transformed it into artist's studios and a living space, allowing her to devote more of her time to painting.

Part of the rebirth of this space included the creation of a garden, and it is this that inspired de Bethune's current paintings. These startlingly immediate and engaging works are the result of the deep connection she feels with the flowers she has raised. Although the paintings reveal them to us only in their blossoming stage, the high point of their life cycle, the entire life process of these flowers, from preparing the earth, planting the seeds and nurturing their growth, combines to feed the inspiration for these works.

Agnes de Bethune says about her career path, "I can't remember a time when I wasn't an artist. It seems to be the only thing I've ever really known about myself. But it's something you cannot choose; it chooses you and you gradually become aware of the implications as you grow up and try to find your way in life."

Agnes de Bethune has shown throughout the metropolitan New York area, New England and New Jersey, including exhibitions at the NJ State Museum in Trenton and the Jersey City Museum. She has received recognition in the form of various juried awards. Her work was included in the NJ State Arts Annual in 1994 and she received a 1995-96 fellowship from the NJ State Council on the Arts. In 2000, she gave her first New York solo exhibition at the Chelsea Studio Gallery. She has subsequently shown work in universities and corporations.
