About The Art
Ink + acrylic. This piece is part of a collection of small works featuring a modern, clean aesthetic with bold color choices and minimalist details. Each piece showcases an exploration of contrast, tension and resolve. Initial layers are allowed the freedom to perform, while details are added in to guide the piece towards an end. Nature vs. nurture, freedom vs. control - these are the constant themes of exploration within this body of work.
About the Artist
Beth graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art in 2002. She began her collegiate career as part of the Architecture program, but quickly realized that the Fine Arts section of the building was where she belonged. The majority of her years in school were actually spent in the dark room, developing film. The hands-on tactility of processing film and the delay of the work coming to life really "fit" - numbers, cause and effect, creativity. After graduating, she worked alongside a photojournalistic photographer for a couple of years until another job forced a move. After setting all creative endeavors aside for quite awhile, she began to feel the itch again.
During her time away, digital photography had swept the photography industry, forcing her to reevaluate her direction. As a fine arts major, she had a fairly full resume of work - throwing and hand building with clay, watercolor, design, sculpture, photography and printmaking. Through the years, she'd painted on the side - nothing major, only small projects - until one fortuitous request changed it all - a request for a large abstract piece. From that, a real passion was awakened.
Additional Print information
Our prints are museum quality prints, that use 100% archival rag paper and archival inks, resulting in beautiful prints with rich and vivid colors. All of our prints include a minimum border of 1" for easy framing. Photographs are printed on a thick, white, matte paper.
The dimensions listed are for the paper size and not the image itself, to give you a better understanding of how much space the print will take up when you hang it on your wall.
Our prints are professionally framed with wood mouldings, archival UV plexi-glass, and come ready to hang on your wall with a hanging wire. Prints can be framed with a 2.75" white mat, or without.
