Using images of architecture and landscape, Kim Beck makes drawings, prints, paintings and installations that survey peripheral and suburban spaces. Her work urges a reconsideration of the built environment - the peculiar street signs, gas station banners, overgrown weeded lots, and self-storage buildings — bringing the banal and everyday into focus.
Kim Beck is my new favourite artist, times one hundred! The descriptions of her work on her website are gorgeous and now I feel totally inspired, after a bit of a grumpy start to my day.
I am starting my new job on Monday, wish me luck, and forgive me if you don't hear from me for a few days while I settle in. I'll be back with news about how I'm getting on and, i expect, with some lighting design deliciousities!
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
