Listing Details


Andrew Beck’s work occupies a space between conventional painting and photography, both in terms of its construction and the objects themselves. Utilizing camera-less photography (photograms) along with paintings and objects, he creates two- and three-dimensional works around concerns of space and light (or rather indexical signs thereof).

Moreover, the image-objects that Beck creates are not straight representations of light play. Often what we see in his work are embellishments – things or moments that would otherwise be physical impossibilities. In his work we see three-dimensional space is treated as if it were two-dimensional, through the use of forced or isometric perspectives (as a would-be inversion of photography); or light refracting in a manner ornate and wholly unnatural – perhaps as a way to articulate a passage of time in static form, or to show light as something solid, something jewel-like.” Nadene Milne

Beck has a Master of Fine Arts from Massey University, Wellington. He exhibits widely in New Zealand and overseas, and his works are held in major public and private collections both nationally and internationally.
