Ashley Beatty - Solid Ashes

Working with a multitude of ideas that coalesce and diverge in cycles I continually open up new possibilities for each piece. As is the ocean to weather, my work is temporal in nature, and is in constant metamorphosis. Each idea, mode of inspiration, or influence is bound with a harmonious thread in order to capture my surroundings. With a heavy handed use of my photography, and printmaking techniques, I conquer the conflict that orbits between visual and contextual. The ideas are eventually realized and linked by an ever evolving state of synthesis and antithesis.
