PRLog - Feb. 10, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- For the past two decades Ford Beckman has approached art making with a duality of purpose, creating minimal "Black Wall Paintings" and explosive "Pop Paintings" simultaneously.
 
Whether the artist is paying homage to artist-heros, such as Malevich, Pollock, Johns or Warhol, Ford Beckman distills each artwork to its essence and invigorates the subject with his facile use of color and industrial materials.
 
"Pop Targets" is an ongoing investigation of the hybridization of minimal and pop aesthetics.  Simultaneously mechanical and gestural, explosive and contemplative, Ford's
Neo-Suprematist/Neo-Spiritual/Neo-Pop paintings expand and continue a modernist discourse.
 
Whether it is the reinterpretation of the square, the ultimate modernist pursuit, or the reinvention of the target the need to re-think and rework that which is iconic is a never ending pursuit for Ford Beckman.
 
"Beckman's painting is a response to the spiritual crisis of modernity. With Beckman, painting renews its spiritual intention, becomes a spiritual sanctuary, achieves, once again, a spiritual aura, if in a very different, indeed worsening spiritual climate." Donald Kuspit
 
Beckman's work has been exhibited internationally and is included in such notable public collections as Panza Collection, Italy; Saatchi Collection, London; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Israeli Museum, Jerusalem; Essl Collection, Vienna; the Denver Art Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
