John Beech

Artist John Beech, born in England and living in Brooklyn, is recognized for his wry  Duchampian twist on the everyday, producing minimalist sculptures and images that combine humor and beauty in perfect union. Beech’s superbly crafted and appointed paintings, drawings, and sculptures have been described by Edward Albee, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Beech’s collaborator for the 2007 book Obscure/Reveal, as “pure beauty.” Ken Johnson of the New York Times states that, “the absurdist conjunction of idealist abstraction and real-world function in Mr. Beech’s work is amusing; it also affords the deeper satisfaction of seeing Minimalism’s mandarin purity brought down to earth.”
