Andrew Beckham has been called a “visual poet” for his contemplative body of work that seeks to make sense of humanity’s place in nature. In his photography, the minutia of life has equal weight to the sublime vista. His juxtapositions of scale and visual associations elicit thoughts on both form and the psyche, and lend poignancy to the places and things he depicts.
In 2013, the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center presented an extensive mid-career retrospective of Beckham’s work, Firmament, in conjunction with the publication of his monograph by George F. Thompson Books.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Each lecture is $5 for students, DAM members, and CPAC members, $10 general admission.
