People who have saved this event:


The artist is presenting a group of paintings that include photographs in various states of overpainting.


In some works the photographic imagery remains deciphe-rable, while in other work it becomes coated with paint to the point where only the evidence of the edge of the photographic paper indicates that a photograph lies beneath. In these recent works, the photographs have been monted on canvas, not covering the entire surface of the painting, allowing the photograph to become a subset of a larger pictorial landscape.

Beech is interested in the physical presence of the paintings, in a manner similar to that of his sculpture, which often employ common building materials.
