MARIANNE BECH

From Here to There
March 8 - March 29, 2016
Reception: Thursday March 10, 2016 6-8 PM

The compelling pastel landscapes of Marianne Bech are rich in vibrant, velvety colors. Bech loves to travel and is often inspired by her journeys to other countries, as well as by the views around her native Denmark. She tends to start her pieces from a photographic reference, but her landscapes are no mere record of buildings and sceneries. Bech's expressive application of pastels, watercolor, and ink transform what may be considered an ordinary landscape into something surreal and unusual. The bright, saturated pigment of the pastels are only in part the cause of this: she composes each scene so that it seems like something out of a dream, occasionally with strange, abstracted figures that are added for both humor and to represent the collective unconscious.

A professional in the fashion business, Bech has always been creative, but she didn’t start working with pastels until relatively recently. As an artist, she is constantly experimenting with new techniques and combinations with other mediums. She says her ultimate goal is to create something beautiful, both for herself and others.
