Proficient in several different mediums, inFoundhe focuses on self-manipulated photographs. Since 2007 he has collectedВ over 600 found photographs and applied his singular touch to each, letting theВ patterns and textures within the photograph become the grounds upon which heВ creates entirely new works of mysterious beauty. Presented here are 86 such pieces.Notable for their range of materials (oil enamel, vinyl paint, ink, pencil, and markerВ pen), the drawings display a diversity of methods to apply marks directly onto theВ surface of the prints, in some cases predominantly covering the photographicВ information, in others emphasizing and punctuating visible elements in theВ photograph.

Deliberate paint passages often exist alongside accidental marks or gestures and incidental imagery may come to the forefront when the primary subject of the photograph has been obscured.Abstraction becomes both Beechs signature and a means to elevate the altered image to an object of its own and of independent value, or better, to a work of art.—The Brooklyn Rail
