NOTION INTERVIEW: WENDY BEVAN TALKS PUNK ICONS, ANDY WARHOL AND MASTERING HER ART
The spellbinding Wendy Bevan is an artist in the fullest and most authentic sense, freewheeling between music, performance and photography to usher us into the scope of her vivid and dramatic imagination. Portraiture is a surreal exploration of the self: Wendy herself melts and morphs wherever a concept leads her. Having just released her Sweet Dedication EP she’s been captivating the UK with her ethereal, electronic creations, warming up our ears for her debut Rose & Thorn later this year. Post-punk basslines throb under Wendy’s dark vocals, accompanied by glimmers of needling synths and reverb-laden electronic organ, coming together to create a oeuvre that sits somewhere between Siouxsie Sioux and the dramatic mini-symphonies of Brooklyn’s Wood Kid.
