he British artist John Beech (b. Winchester, UK, 1964; lives and works in New York) transforms the stuff of ordinary life into aesthetic objects. His approach, which he has described as "everyday reductionist," is recognizably inspired by minimal art, with reminiscences of Donald Judd, Robert Rauschenberg, and others. The British artist John Beech (b. Winchester, UK, 1964; lives and works in New York) transforms the stuff of ordinary life into aesthetic objects. His approach, which he has described as "everyday reductionist," is recognizably inspired by minimal art, with reminiscences of Donald Judd, Robert Rauschenberg, and others. Beech combines found or recycled materials in simple geometric shapes to make unusual aesthetic objects. Working with building supplies, insulation materials, and other mundane staples, he creates strikingly inventive art that occupies the intersection between painting and sculpture. With a great sense of humor and a keen eye for irony, the artist toys with the beholder's visual habits and throws curious details into sharp relief.
The book presents John Beech's most recent works and offers an overview of his sculptures, paintings, drawings, and photographs from the past twenty-five years.
With an essay by Kenneth Baker
