Mark making is calming for me, the colours representing mood, emotion, and physical embodiment and the patterns representing my world, its structure, and the happenings around me. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #beckmetzbower #americanartist #contemporaryart #metzbower #shesculptswithoilpaint #fineart #womeninthearts #inspiration #create #love

‘Sunkissed Moonlight’

Jul 2020

A very old piece (housed in a private collection ) that shows your girl can go dark and subjective every once in a while.

Ten years making art and my favourite pieces are still “oops” ones that started sketchy but finished strong.

A question I continuously am asked is: "but why oil paint? it's SO expensive?"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The conditioning we, as humans, have is to go the cheapest route. The easiest route, even. Oil paint is neither.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oil paint is finnicky, it's slower than molasses to dry, and it's incredibly expensive in its pure form because it's... well... pure. But this pure form of pigment (think rock dust ) and carrier (think linseed oil ) is actually incredibly safe, long-lasting, and have the least damaging effect on the environment. That's work I can stand behind.

As this craziness continues- I'm forced to face reality. Will it still be illegal to host an art show this Fall? Should I start an underground art gang and open an art-centered speak-easy? Am I going to get flagged for this post and put on a special list?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Okay, so only the first question is legitimate. But what happens when an artist is grounded, full stop- from exhibiting and connecting their work with collectors?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hopefully, good things. I'll keep you all updated because I have some big plans happening between now and August that are *not* illegal. Hear that social media police? Totally legal over here.

This piece makes me so happy and I apologize if you've already seen it before- but it reminds me that I'm the result of people in love, immigrants, folk art, and that everything has a purpose.

Mark making is (for me ) absolutely, 100%, hands-down a calming, soothing practice for me.

I like to make art that hurts my eyes, just a little.

I want to give a shout out to my alma mater, @wilsoncollegepa and all the wonderful professors (Robert K. Dickson & Joshua Legg Dance Projects don't have IG social media :( ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My undergrad and graduate education has been vital to my growth as a human being and as an artist. #neverstoplearning ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The college and artists/educators tagged are wonderful and you should give them a follow. If you're looking into colleges- send me a DM and I'd be happy to answer any questions about the M.F.A. program and Wilson College. (no, Wilson didn't pay me to post this either, lol )⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #beckmetzbower #americanartist #contemporaryart #abstractart #shesculptswithoilpaint #womeninthearts #continuingeducation #art #design #style #arteducation #mfa #originalart #visualart #modernart #abstractoilpainting #texture #metzbower #beck #education #colorfulart #arttherapy #arteducation #wilsoncollegepa #BoldlyWilson #environmentalism #love #instagood #happiness
