Join us for this exhibit of new works by Andrew Beckham. In his current work he examines his connection to place. His photography and his drawing practice portray his personal relationship to the mountains that he climbs over and over again. As you look at the loving devotion to the drawings over ghost prints you soon get the sense of commitment. Using charcoal in various forms he painstakingly covers the surface of the paper so that no part of the work isn’t touched by his hand. The repetitive marks allude to the walking and climbing of the mountain over and over again – knowing the surface in the way he knows his artwork. His photographs in this exhibit are covered with micaceous glitter, the very rocks that he climbs, ground in his studio to a powder so that the mountains of his images are forever connected with the artist’s experience of those very depictions.
