About Elizabeth Becker

I work primarily in watercolor, a ‘living’ medium, whose spontaneity and immediacy teaches me to let go, become present in the moment and embrace imperfections. Working loosely and expressively, I allow the paint to have a life of its own as colors bleed together and slowly bloom. It’s in this intuitive state that I can only guide the paint and cannot completely predict the outcome. Many “happy accidents” occur which are unique to the present moment. My work is an exploration of the human condition, emotion, spirituality and nature. Inspired by the interplay between the inner and outer realms of my subjects, my paintings tend to blur the lines between representation and abstraction. I believe the use of abstraction gets us closer to the way things truly are, not just how they appear.
