The Minimalist’s Drawings

Short Description

In this overview of works on paper John Beech (born 1964, Great Britain, lives and works in New York) offers the viewer a thorough examination of a rich and varied body of drawings and monotype prints. Most of these works have previously never been seen outside the artist's studio. Beech is known for his sculpture that merges everyday building materials with an off-kilter minimalist tendency. Concurrently he has focused on drawing and printing, on a range of two-dimensional materials, from basic white drawing paper to photographs and found packaging card. The results from an over thirty-year time period are presented in this book. They demonstrate an investigation of the materials and methods of drawing, often highlighting marks and forms that remain abstract while retaining clear individual specificity. These are works of art that are largely uncovered during their own making, not based on preconceived notions of intent.
