Enid Smith Becker

My paintings are semi-abstracted landscapes and natural images. Oceans, fields, mountains and rivers, botanicals: these images serve as a bridge between us and the natural world. Within each painting I create multiple views of the subject in order to keep the eye moving over the picture plane, the geometric meshing with the organic, humans responding to nature in a constantly changing dialogue. These frames are also highly contemporary, as this is how we see the world around us on a daily basis: through the lenses of time, space and scale as we frame our experience though the screen of a mobile device. The paintings are not the simple depiction of a place but a reminder of our longing for nature and the concomitant complexities of our relationship with the natural world.
