Degard’s paintings join the vast canon of Visionary artists: Hilma af Klint, Susan Hiller, Kandinsky and William Blake. See here for the relationship between Contemporary Visionary Art and consciousness studies in association with The Academy for the Advancement of Post-Materialist Studies AAPS
The Contemporary Visionary genre brings the mystical extraordinary experience and contemporary issues together in Art.
Molly Hackney, writer of The Medium’s Medium (written for an exhibition at Frieze, London 2019) says of one of Degard’s latest exhibition
‘The canvases enchant the viewer with this glimpse into spirit connection.’
Degard graduated from the Royal College of Art. She received awards from the Alan Davie Foundation.
