About John Beech

John Beech edits out the function of everyday objects and materials, reconfiguring them into painted, colored, and textured assemblages that draw attention to form, shape, and scale. With even the subtlest transformations—taping up an old countertop and leaning it against a wall or painting rusty hardware with enamel—Beech reduces functional objects to purely formal explorations, revealing the latent Minimalist vocabulary in everyday design. He applies similar processes to his photographs of industrial and urban sites, editing them using silver industrial tape into reduced, abstract forms.
