Agnes St. Amand



Agnes St. Amand grew up in rural Opelousas, Throughout her youth, Agnes

picked cotton, worked in the family garden and helped with the various

chores of running a household. These years taught her the value of hard

work and the images of hard working women have stayed with her all of

her life. When she began painting, Agnes painted the landscapes of rural

Louisiana with barns, shacks, chickens and fences. As she painted more

she began painting small figures usually of black women working in the

background. The figures became more interesting to her and occupied a

more central role in her paintings. The working figures progressed to

the point where the landscapes disappeared as she focused on the

character, complexity and dignity of her figures. They have

progressively grown in scale and now dominate her canvases as she works

to capture the subtle beauty of these hard working women.

Painting African American women has become the bulk of her work

although she has painted and sold many landscapes and still lifes. Her

chosen medium is oil on canvas, masonite and occasionally wood. She has

been selling her art since the early 1980's when many of her paintings

were sold in conjunction with the New Orleans Worlds Fair to out of

state collectors, most notably Lord and Taylors in New York.
