About the Art
What the artist saysEmotional release and expressive experimentation with water are important to Elizabeth's process, as she works intuitively, allowing colors to bleed together and slowly bloom.
Why we like itThe shadow work on these figurative pieces is almost abstract upon closer inspection. But that lends itself to the human imperfections, of both subject and artist, that she is trying to illustrate. Surfacing No. 2 depicts an unflattering moment – when you reach the surface of the water -- with beauty and emotion.
Where we hang itThis piece works well as the centerpiece on a gallery wall.
About the Artist
Elizabeth BeckerElizabeth works primarily in watercolors. She is drawn to the spontaneity and immediacy of this medium, which has taught her to become present in the moment, relinquish control and embrace imperfections. Her paintings are an exploration of emotion, the human condition and our spiritual connection to nature. Through evolving layers and abstractions, Liz hopes to capture the elusive, transcendent essence of her subjects.
