Today’s Art Works Every Time interview is with Drew Beckmeyer. His work teetering somewhere between abstraction and figuration, creating a symphonic cacophony of color and exuberant linework.
Describe your aesthetic.
Stylistically varied and complex attempts at achieving simplicity, often through the use of historical references or embarrassing personal moments.
Describe the works you have in the upcoming “Art Works Every Time” exhibition?
I’ll have some large work on paper in the show. Most of the pieces being shown came out of a desire to get back into drawing and seeing what that even means to me. as such, the processes that I went through were much more direct than the layering that i was previously doing.
There is a gold piece with a reconstituted architectural plan of Versailles, A huge and messy Van Dyck copy, a drawing of a moveable wall where one could keep his favorite things… those are the easiest to describe.
Words of advice for other artists, designers, creatives?
Please be honest and try hard, and if you can’t, don’t put it up on the internet. I’ll end up looking at it and get depressed.
To see Drew’s work in person, please visit us at the “Art Works Every Time” exhibition, opening June 12th at Synchronicity Gallery, from 8pm-10pm.
