Beard's work investigates the interaction of color, material, geometry, and image. In each composition I seek a soothing formalism in which each part is necessary for the whole. The work is meticulously edited, arranged and rearranged, until I find an order that is curious and dynamic while maintaining a quality of lightness. I often think of the poetic structure and qualities found in a Haiku. Seeing through the lens of this format, I make individual works that rely on restraint and simplicity while simultaneously offering a subtle and quiet sophistication.
