The subjects of Lisa Forster Beach’s her work are varied, ranging from the natural beauty of the Vermont landscape, to architecture shaped by human usage, and finally to the nature of people and forms in nature. What unifies her work is a the strong sense of composition and the elegant interpretation of light. Literal representation is secondary to the character and impression of what is being translated by her brush.
The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception on Sunday Oct. 14; 4-6 pm. Beach gets to the essence and spirit of the New England landscape. Her emphasis on structural design is constant in all of her paintings but; of greater concern; is the translation of the character and the impression of an experience into visual artistic language; rather than creating a factual representation. Beach prefers to paint on location to capture that New England spirit embodied in the natural world. www.emilegruppegallery.com or 899-3211.
