WILLIAM BECKMAN: New Works by an American Master

“I think all artists share this, we feel that
we have something to offer or to say.  And there’s
that need to want to leave something
behind…we are only here for a short time.”

“I really like being alone…I never play music,
never listen to anything, it’s just dead silence.
So I’ve become the automatic subject…
there’s probably no one that I know better than myself.”

Beckman quote - Self Portrait with image

​William Beckman, S.P. w/ I-P, 2019, oil on panel, 23 3/4 x 19 1/2 inches

“I’ve only done one painting…where the figures are touching each other. (With) all my paintings…there’s a space given to each figure, so they have their own identity. They’re not overlapped, and that’s intentional.”
