“On the Edge”

A Series of Oil Paintings by Christina Beecher

Exhibition: November 2nd – 27th, 2019 

Museum Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat from 10am-5pm

(Closed Nov 28th – Dec 2nd)

 

 

Artist Statement:

In these works, I am exploring the very “edge” of the landscape.  This can be seen as in the “actual horizon line,” or perhaps where the point I feel a work diverges from realism to the abstract. After years of studying nature, I am still profoundly affected by what I see in our world; the values, the changing light, the positive and negative shapes.  This study now allows me to step away from what is seen around me in a new and fresher light.  Colors no longer need to conform to what we see in the natural world.  Shapes ebb and flow over the land, which to me is only rooted in the real world by a horizon line.  This line gives me comfort as I stay just North of the abstract world.

Biography:

Christina Beecher received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art studying Industrial Design and Graphics and left the corporate world to pursue painting.  Although she enjoys plein-air painting, she usually spends her time right in her home studio, creating work from what she feels and remembers. Christina paints primarily in oils but explores other mediums and surfaces from time to time to stay fresh.  She focuses on the landscape and currently is exploring what that means to her. Often focusing her serene landscapes on the extreme times of day and night, she explores when the light has its greatest impact. 

 

Christina actively participates in the Greater Boston/Southern New England art scene.  She is a member and trustee at the Attleboro Arts Museum.   She teaches students privately in her home studio, has worked in the Mansfield Public School system, enjoys doing art demonstrations for local art associations and has taught oil painting at the Hunakai School of Art in Foxboro, MA.  Christina continually participates locally in several group shows, has been honored with a retrospective at Wheaton College in 2010 and was one of 8 artists selected to participate in the 2007 “8 Visions” exhibition at the Attleboro Arts Museum.  She participated in a two-person show alongside Dennis Sheehan in the First Inness Landscape Invitational at the Zullo Gallery in Medfield, MA.   She is represented by The Next Door Gallery in Mansfield, MA; The Preservation Framer in North Attleboro, MA; True Grit Gallery in Middleboro and Galatea Gallery of Fine Art in Boston, MA.
