Phoebe Beasley, “Departing Sleeper Car”, 2005, collage on canvas, 36 x 36 inches.
SANTA MONICA, CA -- "Phoebe Beasley's beautiful collages transport you into worlds we move through everyday," says Gordon Parks. "Haunting male and female figures wander through abstractions worthy of standing alone."
World renowned art historian Samella Lewis adds, "[Beasley] applies an uncanny sense of spontaneity using collage and painting techniques to develop her application of materials."
Timeless Textured Threads: Artwork by Phoebe Beasley features some of the finest collages created by the artist. The show runs from November 5 to December 24, 2005. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition ($20).
Beasley's work is in many individual and institutional collections including those of Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou, Gordon Parks, the California African American Museum, UCLA, Hampton University Museum, University of Delaware, Paul R. Jones Collection, Gillette Company, Colgate-Palmolive, and Magic Johnson Enterprises.
