Watercolors & Drawings
The small, jewel-toned watercolor and ink works on paper are an investigation of meandering lines that toy with the abstract shapes that stand-in as alternate ways of seeing air, earth, water and other forms found in nature. Mr Beard recently was awarded a residency at the world renowned artist colony, Cill Rialaig Project in County Kerry, Ireland. Beard has also created installation works, including “Thinking of You,” a meditation on friends lost to AIDS, which appeared in Milan, Turin, and New York to unanimous critical acclaim. His work has been exhibited internationally at venues including the Chelsea Arts Club, London; the National Academy of Design, New York and he is currently preparing for a solo exhibition in Dublin, Ireland. Robert Beard lives in New York and the Hudson Valley.
